Friend was denied a senior financial analyst position with a local company. Took notes during the interview. I thought this was weird. Any experiences? Yay or nay?

Are some of these “take notes at interviews” comments sarcasm? because I think taking notes at interviews is the lamest shit ever. I don’t want to work with someone who takes notes at interviews...

Lmao! Clearly I'm in the minority here about taking notes. Honestly I always assumed that everyone took notes until right now. Obviously I don't write down every single word, but I do like to jot down key points/relevant info or any questions that I have so I can ask them later. It's always worked for me 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

Depends - was he furiously scribbling? How many pages of notes? Or just jotting down 1-2 words to remember something later?

Yes take notes. I write down names and any major things I think I will want to remember when considering the offer

Why would you write down their names? It’s called a business card

I guess that make sense. Taking notes of names and key facts. But I think with b4 firms the interview style is so much more conversational. Note taking may not really fit.
