Seriously though, read and know every bit of your resume. Search your interviewer if you know their name. Try to find things in common. Know your weaknesses and growth points. Have a point of view on the major subject or trends for your position/competency. Know what you want out of the opportunity. Have 3-5 meaningful questions ready to go.

How would you go about telling a company you don’t want to do anymore interviews? I was originally told probably two or three, then “one last one”, and now “potentially two more”. In each interview, they talk like I have the role and keep asking how much notice I would need to give as if they’re in a rush to get me in, but then schedule another round of interviews. Honestly the interviews seem more like meet and greets. Cont.

Hello. I have an interview for a company that doesn’t offer maternity leave for employees under a year. I happen to be 5 months pregnant.

Dumb question but what makes up total compensation? Obviously salary, but bonus is so variable it seems difficult to add and RSUs usually are given out over a beating period so in theory are finite (ex. only given for four years)
