Hello HR folks

C'mon guys!! Help other people of the same domain. If any one is asking for a referral, insight about a particular job opportunity. Please share your thoughts and help them as much as you can.

How to approach it?
1) Network - send out coffee chat emails to alums or any professional at the firms you want to apply to
2) Prep technicals, behaviorals
3) Insights/Diversity programs - look for any that are still open and apply ASAP if you qualify, they can lead to an accelerated interview process
4) Find when apps usually open
