It’s 100% normal when the people interviewing you have no idea how to conduct an interview. Too many people lack basic professional skills. And too many of them work in our industry.

Cont: and accounts person. Went over my book. I made them chuckle/laugh a few times. At the end, they said a few more interview were left & they’d get back to me after the holiday. Guess the vibe was too hard to read, since I did most of the driving.

Better than listening to them talk the entire time.

Hey guys. I have a technical interview with AlixPartners restructuring and turnaround team. This is for their summer intern position. I didn’t come from a restructuring background. Does anyone have an idea of what might get asked in the interview? Is it going to be very restructuring specific or some general accounting/ finance/ operational sides of topics.

I had an interview last week for a Jr CW job. All went well it seemed. The CCO’s exact closing words were “You’re gonna have a great career. Your ideas are good”. Additionally, a CD there I contacted on LinkedIn said the CCO liked my book. But he ended by telling me they’re still getting things sorted out and to follow up this week. Don’t know if this is a bad sign I won’t get it or if I’m just being insanely impatient and unrealistic.
