Hey all, please share your best case prep resources and tips. Preparing for cognitive ability interview at Google - dream role in strategy and operations. Super rusty though and have less than a week to prepare.
I was doing the hiring interview for an experienced hire last week, in our technology consulting practice. I discussed the career level, specialty group, type of work, etc. The candidate then said that they would only accept the offer if it allowed them to work from home, indefinitely. Have others encountered such a request? BTW, no offer was extended. I couldn’t commit to “indefinite WFH”, when clients often require us on-site and with out-of-town travel.
