You should also make sure you understand basic concepts such as NPV, ROI and hurdle rates, EBITDA, etc. You’d be surprised how often they ask the simplest questions to rule out folks who have no financial acumen

Recruiter called today and she asked my comp expectations before I asked the comp range for her roles. I made the mistake (?) of saying my range first. Is there any way and is it appropriate to flip the question around? Or to just refuse to answer? Also, recruiter asked where I am with other interviews and what kinds of other ops I'm entertaining. I said I have several interviews lined up and vaguely named some industries (big tech, HF, VC, etc; all true). Is that bad / too much info?

8 months ago I opted out of a longer term gig with my company because it isn’t what I truly enjoy doing. Since then, I’ve kept my current role and have interviewed extensively, confidently turning down some roles, getting rejected from others I would’ve killed for. I’ve taken most of it in stride but was just told by my current job I have two weeks before they need my seat. The idea of being unemployed (25M) terrifies me but I don’t want to settle for a role I’m not ecstatic about.
