While the "polls" show Biden 10 points ahead, the campaign is not being run by people who feel assured of victory. The main candidate is literally a ghost. He sits in a basement all day with the "lid" on. It feels more like a campaign that has completely given up.

I started my interview process last October and had my final interview before Christmas. It’s been over 4 weeks now since my last interview and I still have not heard back from the recruiter. I’ve followed up once after the new year, nothing. Should I follow up again or just wait and be patient? I understand it was the holidays but even if they don’t have an update yet can’t they at least let me know? Heard the recruiting/hiring process at google is notoriously slow, but is this common?

Applied to a job at Nuveen. The online application asks if you've ever been fired from a job. It's a required question so I had to answer it. Fact is I was fired from my last job so I answered yes. Should I just forget about Nuveen? Why do they even ask this anyway? I've never in my life seen this question on a job application not have I been asked this in an interview...
