Was anyone else required to submit a writing sample? Can we use subheads like a business whitepaper format or should it be a narrative essay? I have my Loop early next week

I was asked to do a writing assessment, I used subheads and would recommend that if your sample is text heavy (eg more than a page)


Same! Had a writing test, used subheads. Got an offer.

Does anyone just not care anymore? At all? About anything? I don’t feel like doing any work. If I get fired, fine. If I have to move back in w my parents, fine. If I deplete all my savings, fine. Ppl are dying, fine. Global depression, fine. I’m numb. I straight up just don’t care about anything anymore.

Am I a jerk for ghosting a recruiter I've been in touch with because they called my work phone and emailed my work email (in addition to my personal contact info)? I'm normally up front with recruiters if I don't want to work with them anymore, but this was a horrible impression to me I just didn't bother getting back to them.

Can anyone who just did an MBA Sr Program Manager internship share their full time offer details?


What do you think about the loop (non-tech)? I really don’t think it told much about who I really am at work. I felt that asking me the really small details of everything actually missed a huge chunk of what I do and makes me a valuable leader. I had to spend a few interviews going into the finest details of products’ features in my past companies where my role, past or future, has nothing to do with product. It felt like testing a professional swimmer how fast they run 100m. How did you feel?


Was approached by agency for a Business Analyst contract role at Amazon. I’ve heard about not applying for warehouse/fulfillment roles as a way to get in to Amazon as an FTE but what about entering Amazon as a contractor?

This is on the Transfer Pricing Accounting team.
