I've never been asked to sign an NDA for an interview.

I could see it being a requirement depending on the nature of the job and the company.

I have. Have had Lots of interview but only signed a cda once. It was a pretty standard unilateral cda do I signed it. Pharma company

This is quite uncommon, but can happen. Depends on the industry and if there are govt or military or other contracts involved.

I’ve signed one when a recruiting agency could not (without the NDA) reveal the company name (searching for a replacement currently in the seat)

Uncommon, but happens. I had to do it for Google. Can't recall any other time.

Did this for a fintech

I’m a Sr. Bi Analyst looking for new opportunities due to company instability and poor managerial guidance. For the past 1.5yrs, I’m finding myself in meetings most of the day and delegating to IT to fix or create views in the DB. When looking at other sr Bi roles in tech companies, seems they emphasize on heavy SQL skills. I’m worried my sql skills are not up to par (I’m strong in tableau). Any tips for interviewing elsewhere for Sr.BI roles?. Do all tech bi interviews require sql tests?

Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.
PLS HELP ME.

Hi Everyone, I am trying to apply for a Technical Support role at Dropbox. I’m entering all the required fields but there seems to be an issue, when I hit submit after filling the form, it doesn’t submit and throws error ‘Looks like you left this blank! Please fill out this required field’ when all the fields are entered already (I have checked so many times, and filled the form from scratch several times too). Anyone from Dropbox who can put me in touch with HR or suggest what I should do next?
