Have a story ready for each leadership principle. More than one if you can.

Yes includes video

If its a Business or data analyst type position, then make sure you're well versed with SQL and Amazons principles scenario based questions.

Oh weird. Phone screen shouldn’t include video. The full day of interviews does.

I would contact the recruiter and get a better understanding of the position. Going in blind or not being clear is not good at all. As you prepare using leadership principles also look to incorporate your experiences in line with the position you are interviewing for.

Is it expected to contact recruiter once they set you up for a call?

Recruiters are super helpful. Ask them to provide details about the role.

Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it? No, just me? Are there any true indicators for knowing whether you did well in an interview or nah?

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun.

Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
