Hi all, grad student here:
I'm currently working on my Master's thesis at Columbia for a degree in Negotiation & Conflict Resolution, focusing on organizational change. I am looking to interview people who were working as Administrative/Executive Assistants at Nest during the first six months post-Google acquisition. So basically around January, 2014.
The interviews will be confidential, with pseudonyms and/or composites as needed.
Is this you? Do you know anyone who might know anyone?
Looking for advice. Have an upcoming tech case study as a final interview stage for VP technology consulting role.
There is nothing to prepare in advance. Interviewer will brief me over Zoom and give me the case study instructions. I have the remainder of the first hour to prepare based on the scenario provided.
In the second hour, I will present my response to the case study to a panel. Afterwards, there will be an additional time for interview questions and discussion with the panel.

I just finished my fifth interview with Amazon and feeling pretty down. The interviewer felt dismissive at times and didn't give me a chance to ask questions about the team. So far, no one I've interviewed with seemed excited to grow the team.
I'm certain I don't want to continue. Any tips on how to proceed?
3rd job rejection after I thought it went really well. I had really great interviews & good feedback on my portfolio. When I ask why I didn’t get the position the answer I keep getting is “decided to go with someone with more experience”. Which is so frustrating, bc it’s just not as constructive as I’d like. Feels like I’ll never land a new job 😞. With that said, this defeated spirit could use some positivity. Share something that makes you smile! (A story, pet, drawing, memory, joke, etc)

Hi fishes, can anyone throw some light on Sprinklr ? I interviewed with them for Insights Lead but not sure about the work culture, WLB and salary range. Can someone please help! Thanks in advance.
Am I crazy for withdrawing from a role bc the interview process is too intensive? I’m just over it. I applied, had an initial call w the hiring manager and he emailed me the rest of the process. It’s THREE separate 2hr interview rounds during which I have to make a presentation and then do a take home exercise (aka work for free.) Sorry but I’ve put a lot of time/money into packaging up my experience into a thorough portfolio, website, resume, etc. (Continued)
Hi, struggling here. Boyfriend’s sister got pregnant at 20 and she has decided to get an abortion. Parents and boyfriend are encouraging her and “logically” is seems the right decisions because she and her boyfriend do not have a possible way to care for this baby. Boyfriend is a new christian and family catholic but not practicing. I’m struggling with trying to not be judgmental about the support for abortion. I honestly feel so torn between what the bible says and the situation. Any advice?
This was recently posted in a thread I was commenting on. “It frustrates me to read people’s messages from states with very few cases to act like the virus is nothing to those of us whose states have a 100k.” Syntax aside, the meaning is clear—if you are from a small state, you should zip it.
I am from a small state. Our case count will never break us out of the bottom quartile (probably never get above the bottom 5.) Does that mean I am not allowed to have an opinion?
Question for y’all AD’s. What type of work are you assigned? I’m currently feeling a little disappointed because I am mainly doing production stuff, and a lot of design work. Of course I know my way around Adobe but I’m not a designer. I got in this industry because I loved the conceptual side of being a creative and enjoy building decks and pitching ideas. Just wondering if it gets better or am I just in an odd situation
