3 45 min behaviors usually Team just wants to see if you are a fit Qualifications and experiences at this point is mostly irrelevant. Some interviewers won’t even have prepared questions or anything. (Based on my and other business roles super day experience in 2019)

Interesting—when I was invited for the virtual 3 interviews a few months back for a Business Planning role, they had a case interview and 2 behavioral. And the case interview was an MBB-style case. Has the process changed?

Behavorial only

Cold calling agencies. Is it weird to google/LinkedIn a specific person (HOP, say) and dial by name, directly call them? Agencies are massive and receptionists (if there is one) won’t direct you to a role. They want a name. For freelancers trying to network, this seems to be the only way in if you have no contacts there. Any thoughts or advice appreciated.

Question for my friends in Pharma: every new pharma ad I see has the same FIRST line of legal now: “Do not use <zoozoovanix> if you are allergic to <zoozoovanix.>” Obvious and hilarious advice, sure—but for it to not only be in every ad now, but jump to the VERY FRONT of a long line of disclaimers makes me think there must have been a yuge lawsuit. Does anyone know the story? Sounds like something sent ripples through the whole industry.
