Super collaborative. No matter what question I have, there’s always SOMEONE who has exactly the skill I need to get the job done. Most of us have a lot of experience in weird things beyond our specific roles, so it’s an easy place to source obscure talents

I’d suggest going back to the thread on this from last week or so, but that kind of just became an internal game of Guess Who? Our strat dept is full of some of the best/brightest humans I’ve ever known (esp Omar <3!). Def bring your A game. What role are you coming in for?

Sorry my interview got pushed 👎🏾 really want to be a part of the strat team. Thoughts on if i should go past the recruiter and to Omar or someone who’s a shit caller?

I wouldn't go past the recruiter. Also, patience. You'll have a couple of interviews so it might take some time to get an offer.

Def don’t try to get around HR (we don’t use third party recruiters). We’ve had a bunch of new joiners recently, so I’m sure HR is swamped. Def don’t read too much into the interview getting moved

Also, bring your game face

Give 110%

I don’t have any specifics but i just know it’s strat. I come from experiential one of the top ones in New York. I do creative strategy I’ve always gave 110%. Thank you! Is it a collaborative environment?

Pro tip: Bring your game face!

I’m from New York so my game face will never come off

Any need for producers? 😉

Hi guys, I have a last interview round with a company coming up, and I already know I don’t want to work there (as I’m interviewing with other places I find more exciting). Would you do the last interview and THEN let them know you don’t want it? Or would you tell them before the last round interview? And would you just say you’re interviewing with some other places more aligned to your end-goals?

I'm a nontraditional new attorney who is three weeks in to their first firm job. Long story short I was VERY clear in my interview on my expectations for training in my first year. My boss made it clear we were on the same page During my first week, he does the exact opposite of what we agreed on for training and development. I've spent two weeks sitting in my office trying to train myself. I don't think this is a good fit. How long do I need to drown here before applying for other jobs?
