Depends on what level you are interviewing for

I’m a manager at EYP. Due for promotion to SM this year. Will look for the level accordingly

Tech Corp Dev interviews will start off with a couple of qualitative discussions about your background, and thoughts on market, industry, targets. Usually followed by a case study and valuation/modeling test where you discuss an acquisition target and make an investment rec. These used to be either take homes or done onsite. Sometimes these case studies are more qualitative where they ask your thoughts on an industry / more landscaping (don’t like these). Then lastly usually a panel interview to discuss your case investment rationale, analyses, any other Q&A

I put my notice in and my boss is giving me lots of new work/projects to work on and expecting me to be responsive past standard working hours. AITA for setting boundaries and saying no to new work and focusing on wrapping things up instead? I got a new job because I was severely bullied by a member of leadership and it has had a negative impact on my mental health where I’m now on medications and seeing a therapist.
