I am updating my resume and prepping for interviews, but need to refresh my memory on certain specific details. For some work, my former teammates also don’t remember and have left the firm. Do firms let you reaccess docs in these instances so you can remember your work experience? What options are there?

No way, I'd tell you to get lost. I don't want to waste firm time helping you reminisce. That's not my problem.

I'm surprised you didn't keep copies or some sort of record of your work.

I've never heard of this and probably wouldn't allow it. If a former employee asked me I would likely respond but other than that I wouldn't give any documents or information.

To be clear, I am trying to remember experience from a prior firm. Thanks.

I’m changing industries and was told the interviewers can drill down on experiences. It’s a super competitive process (beyond the usual “tell me about your experience”) and perhaps I’m over prepping, but I’m trying to cover all bases (beyond what I currently have record of).

If you can’t remember the docs, time to create a new doc with fake details for the interviews and drill that down. No one will ever know.

Went through 4 interviews, panel with presentation/case study with mental health startup that has nothing but rave reviews for me. Apparently no TA team until after I was offered something 20K+ less than I make now. Head of new TA team said they’ll work with me to find a position that fits - the process I went through was “grossly mishandled”. Keep telling me that not even managers make what I’m asking for. Asking for 75k min for 30+ caseload. How do I push them on it? is even worth it?
