Go deep on what they’d want from you. Ask them how they will brief work. Ask if they have planners on staff. Ask if they have project managers on staff. Ask about reporting structure (are you reporting into your clients? Red flag.) Who is on your team? How do they manage workload/asks. When are you allowed to turn work down?

Small firm reached out to coordinate a potential part time or per diem role and they wanted to coordinate an in person interview about a week and a half ago noting that it's phase 2 and they are in office...would have been a 40 min subway right and then no clue if masks would have been honored. Was it wrong to say Sorry don't feel comfortable?

It's almost frustrating to find another job at the 5th year of H1B. What do you guys suggest? EY is pretty scary when it comes to expectations (managers/Sr.Managers I work with) who can screw me over any time. And the climate of layoffs. Only thing holding me back is the GC for which perm is still in process
