I'm scheduled to have my first interview with Stripe this week with an Exec Recruiter for a non-tech leadership position. I have a few friends of friends there, also in leadership positions, and I'm wondering when the smartest time to ask them to advocate for me might be? Now? Wait til I advance further? Coming from a world where hiring processes are informal and the single most-important thing is who you know at a company, I'm a little unfamiliar w/ the tech world interview process.

Hey y’all, I wanted to ask in this bowl as well!
For those that are in big tech or not and have to RTO, may I ask the reason why they need you in office? Second, is it worth interviewing with these companies? I’m asking because I live in Houston and I prefer remote. Microsoft has reached out to me for an interview as well as Airbnb. I currently work remotely at a start up and enjoy it. But, I ask is it worth exploring these opportunities?

Why do you think the manager wants to meet again? Good? Bad? I felt great about the interview when we ended.

I just finished an interview and the hiring manager made some comments during the interview that I believe are 🚩🚩🚩. Among the comments were, “the person needs to help show Sr. Management the FP&A dept is important and brings value.” “I’m going to be honest, we have other candidates for this position, you need to bring your game to the second interview”. The rest of the interview was describing their problems as a dept and then proceeds to ask if I can handle it. How can I respectfully decline?
