I would advise not getting on the phone if it’s one of the big HHs (CPI, amnity, ratio, etc) unless you’ve done a little bit of research/reading up on the job/industry. There is a ton of info out there (check Wall Street oasis). Just because you do want to be somewhat informed when you get on the phone

Yeah in that case feel free to go for it and just learn more
