Thank you!

Agreed with what others said. No harm. And honestly, it’s good to start interviewing early in your career with them if you want to work there eventually. A lot of people actually go through 2-3 interview cycles for different roles with FAANG companies before actually getting hired. Even if you don’t get the job this time, getting in their system is a great start, and you won’t hurt future prospects with them by not getting it this time (caveat, unless you do something crazy in the interview...so just behave normally haha) Good luck!

Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles?

Hi All, I worked for 4 months at some agency as a full time, due to personal reasons I had to leave that job. After a month I joined another agency where I’m currently working/furloughed. In resume I do not mention that job where I worked for 4 months due to obvious reasons. Can any new potential employer find out that 4months I hid and covered under previous employment? Please advise, I’m scared as I’m not getting any offers despite interviewed at several organizations.

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
