Have an interview tomorrow and wrote down some notes in my notebook on what I know about the company/founders/role and questions I have. Is it ok to bring this into the interview?

I don't see why it would be an issue. I've brought questions with me to almost all of my interviews in a notebook. I try and do research on the interviewers as well if I get their names ahead of time

Yes. Absolutely. It shows preparation, anticipation, and diligence. I once asked a question to a candidate on what they did to prepare for the interview. The girl opened her computer and showed a word document which had topics arranged by sections, details of all her prior rounds, and google / LinkedIn research details. Needless to say, she was hired

Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.
