Why wouldn't you just do a search fund? That way you'd be guaranteed to end up in a C-Suite role.

Search fund is a very interesting idea. I had in mind c-suite roles for more established companies, but larger startups be an option, thanks for the suggestion!

I'm on a hiring committee for a new legal assistant. I looked an applicant ("A") up on Facebook just out of curiosity and saw a LOT of very public posts about A's strongly held views that are fairly intolerant/ignorant. We're a VERY small office and we deal with clients who may fall into demographics that A may "disagree" with. I feel like some of the posts alone may be disqualifying but how should I approach the topic in the interview (2nd interview), if at all? I just can't imagine (cont.)

Hello!

People working in Amazon AWS (especially sales development or lead development rep):
- how’s the culture like in AWS?
- is it a stressful environment?
- what is the pay range from this role?
- how does career path looks like?

I’ve heard mixed reviews from people around me and want to hear from the community how you all feel? Is it worth pursuing a role in FAANG or just go for unicorns and get career growth from there? (I just had my first round of interview with AWS today)
