Sure. But why would you?

Then it would depend on the industry. Financial services: suit all the way. Tech company: business casual, etc

You can. If you were interviewing at a relaxed culture company (media, advertising or tech startups) that could be good enough. For others, I would recommend to full formal.

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”.

This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.

I had an interview at Spotify but didn’t make it to the final round. Just out of curiosity do they blacklist applicants that interviewed but didn’t make the final cut? I completely bombed the second round interview because I was nervous and none of the questions that were asked were the one’s I prepped and studied for. Spotify is my dream company and want to try applying again in the future.

I hate the fact that when recruiters reach out they don’t say what the salary range is, virtual or in-person, weekly hour expectations, how big the accounting department is, or literally anything you would want to know before deciding whether an interview is worth your time.

First time I interviewed at my current firm I didn't make it past my second round due to a bad review from an interviewer. Applied again a year later and got hired. In between that year, the interviewer who wrote me a bad review got fired due to poor performance. Moral of the story, it sucks that one person can mess up your job search so badly but don't give up! Often times it's not you, it's them!

Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
