I had a headhunter from Equifax recently reach out. Took a lot of restraint to not give a snarky reply about their data policy.

That was a bridge I was happy to burn right around when their big scandal came to light. Had a recruiter reach out and I sent him a nicely written, but scathing, response about why I had no interest in ever working for them under any circumstances. That was one of the few times I've actually responded to random recruiters with a personalized response.

Does it make sense to prepare hard by solving 40-60 cases, if interview is mostly based on subjective opinion of an interviewer? Like if he wants you to pass he will help , and if he didnt like you , he would make sure you fail somewhere by asking super tough questions
