I took great pride in being a total slob at bschool. Especially second year (goodbye shaving!). Basically your last chance to do that until you're retired.

Depends on the school what the mix between slobs and dress to impress is.

Blue jeans a or shorts unless told otherwise or had a recruiter event.

Appreciate the responses and the honesty everyone! Thought for sure everyone would be wearing Banana Republic and Sperrys 😂

How have your insurance costs changed over the last year? My home insurance jumped 20% which I guess makes sense as the value and cost of replacement have gone up but I was surprised to also see my car insurance go up 20% given it is a 5 y/o non luxury car driven <10k miles a year. Is this purely driven by the used car market or is this abnormal in the current environment?

Probably time to shop around again as I've been with State Farm for years.

Hi all, I am currently a PM at Schneider Electric. Wanting to branch to PM in tech. I am an electrical engineer by trade with no background in computer science, what type of PM role I should target in my application journey and should I target more hardware based PM roles (as I currently manage a portfolio of hardware products with little to no software) or as long as I can do well during the interview it does not really matter ? Also any resource advise for PM interview prep ?

I have an interview coming up with Church & Dwight. When the recruiter emailed me with 3 interview times I thought he was asking me what time works best.

It seems odd to me
