D1 they’ve specifically requested a video interview so I don’t have that option. Unless of course my computer starts acting up 😉

It’s more of a power move, they’ll know they’re getting a leader

Honest answer: - Business attire, depending on the company you may go more casual but better safe than sorry - Guarantee you have a professional background, i.e. an office-like background or painted wall. Pls don't join showing your bed not made, or made but with dirty clothes - No funny headsets (obv). - with the video on, all the interviewer will see is your face. So if it's the case, trim your beard, get a good shower before, etc. - Join like 3-5 minutes before. You don't want to join the call after your interviewer, unless he joined earlier than that

Real honest answer: Join 10 minutes late, start by saying you'll have to drop off soon cause you have another call, and pick up your phone right after - this way they will know you're partner material

Be ready to work 12-15 hours a day plus weekends. I interviewed with them and decided to not continue with the process bc of that. Bunch of Ivy League people but that doesn’t mean they can do the job.

Lol I work at D now. They pay me better than what zoom was offering 😄
