Hi everyone! I will be going through my first whiteboard/case-style interview for the first time (I was converted from an intern to full time at my current company). This marketing associate position would require some level of excel knowledge specifically on Pivot Tables & VLookUps for email campaign analysis.

What company, or type of company, is it with?

like

Tech company. Job is to analyze cold email + email campaign data

If you've got the name of the company sometimes it helps to do a google search and literally type in how to prepare for those interviews. For FAANG, for example, there are even YT videos. If you can't find that, I suggest learning both those things, also maybe on youtube, just so you know how to use them, then trying your own self-assigned thing.

The company I’m interviewing for is not under FAANG but I’ll definitely use their examples as practice too! Thank you for the idea :)

Interviewing tip needed: I feel like a diversity hire at most of the companies I have worked for. A sentiment that is felt by other diverse colleagues at my job. When looking for a new job, what questions can I ask to find this out before I join? How can I assess whether a company truly values my skillset, pay equally, & promote equally? Whether there are implicit biases at play? My current job has 2 diverse bosses at senior level so I took that as a good sign but I was wrong.

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers.

(4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
