Hi all! What are some really impressive questions to ask admins and/or interviewers?

Do you know who my father is?


Luke, is that you??

There’s no such thing as an “impressive” question. I’ve never once been impressed by a candidate’s question for me. Your interviewer has likely already heard every possible question you could ask; you’re not going to ask them something novel. You should ask what you’re actually curious about to get a better feel for the school. Plus, it’s fairly easy to tell when someone is asking a question just to ask versus when they actually care about the answer.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

This is looking great!

Living it up in the city.

Still not seeing location in the post window when turning it off.

What are some good companies to work for in Dallas?

I have gained some weight during the past months. On a one-on-one with a partner, I got a “friendly advice” to get back in shape since looks matters to clients.


I’m from a low-income family, the only one who went to college) and already make more @25 (140k) than my blue-collar parents ever did in their life. There is clear resentment, judgment, jealousy from family regards to my life/ income to where I stopped sharing vacation plans/ posting about my adventures. Has anyone else been in this position? How do you manage it?


Embarrassing thing you’ve done at work and got away with? One time WFH, I fell asleep and woke up 20 minutes into a 30 minute call. Didn’t join because I felt it was too late. No one ever mentioned it


What’s your best nontraditional “Somebody I know made a fortune doing blank” story (I.e. reselling tickets, only fans, nail salons)


With inflation, is 200k savings by 25 even above standard anymore for white collar professionals in careers like consulting/SWE/banking?


Client takes Halloween too seriously.. I’m currently working for a Unicorn today. 🦄 🌈


A former boss reached out about a role on his new team. When it came up that I just had a kid, he literally said, “I think you’re busy with other priorities now.” And the conversation ended. Anyway, that still happens.


To the people who don’t want to forgive student loans, but do believe in funding welfare programs (specifically the ones that only low income people have access to.. not funding for schools/ libraries), why is it that you don’t believe in helping people who exhausted every opportunity to get an education and attempt to be a productive member of society, but you do believe in helping the other people? I’m genuinely curious so please don’t be disrespectful in the comments.


Is Big4 still a good career long term? Is ‘the safety’ actually real or just a mirage due to the lack of recession? Everyone I talk to sounds like they are way better off than pursuing this one. Have met only 1 or 2 Partners who jobs I would like to pursue. 6 years in and I think I’m having a little career crisis.
