I went to my car and took it from my iPad.

I actually made my last one in a conference room where everybody could see through the glass. Computer against the wall, obviously. Nobody ever will see you in that situation and think you are interviewing

Find an empty conference room.

Wfh...I wouldn’t want to be paranoid the entire time that someone would hear me/see me/walk in accidentally during the interview.

Use the app on your phone + headphones. Add WiFi at local McDonalds - You’re Golden. ( Arches )

Had tech interview with HCL during last week of Sept. After a week, they mentioned I cleared it and they were waiting for client availibility for client round. It's been a month now, there has been no updates or response regarding client round.
Are they moving ahead with candidature or should I drop the idea of follow ups as it seems to be a dead end?
Pls suggest

When reaching out to someone at an agency about working there (ignoring the application portal or if the job I want isn't actually listed) who should I contact? CD? ECD? CCO?
I've only worked at small shops with one to two CDs, so I'm not sure what the etiquette is here. I assume that a CCO would have the final hiring sign-off, but are they too high up for this stage of the process?

"Giving you time back" is a phrase I hear more and more often now when meetings either end early or get cancelled. I started at a new agency recently and feel like this phrase speaks volumes to their idea of work/life balance. Our time belongs to them and they give it back to us at their discretion. Super strange environment to work in. Happy Tuesday!

Anyone else notice the "analysts" they work with can't do....analyses? I worked with a small analytics team in the past, all with stats or similar backgrounds who helped with heavy reporting lifts like MTA modeling and SQL query-based deliverables.

But the longer I'm in the industry the most I'm thinking that structure was an outlier. Seems like most Analytics departments are glorified button pushers, pulling DSP reporting I could pull myself and making pivot tables. Anyone else see the same?
