Friday will be my first time interviewing someone for a job that’s not an intern. It’s going to be weird being the other side of the table. Suggestions on questions to ask?

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)
Will taking an internship in Pharma (for the experience — not to line up a job) hurt me for the future? It would be my first agency experience and I plan on going to portfolio school after I graduate
Hey guys- I have an intern buddy who was assigned to me and they’re just down the block from me. They want to meet up and I feel awful because they came to the city to intern and they don’t know anyone. It is not policy to meet up rn but if I was to just meet the person in a park for a coffee is that not a good move?

(For one of my friends) How is the career as a Functional Consultant vs Valuation/Corporate finance professional? Profile: MBA (Finance and Ops) Looking for good growth, decent wlb and good pay
Just got turned down by Amazon after two extensive writing assignments, 6 interviews and hours spent preparing. And their policy doesn’t allow them to give feedback when an offer is not made. Talk about a bruised ego. The only silver lining is staying long enough to collect the October and January big law bonuses and then I’m out! The question is where else pays like Amazon?!
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
“If you’re not sweating by first hour, you’re not teaching”, “Don’t let me walk in the room and see you a$$ sitting down”, “ You should leave everyday exhausted” just a few quotes from our new academic supervisor. I find these extremely offensive, but since this is a supervisor any advice on how to handle this situation?
I hate that it takes me being sick on the couch for a weekend to realize I need to chill TF out and take care of Me first.
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
I'm looking to purchase American Airlines miles. Any suggestions on how to purchase miles other than from AA?
