You get to choose between Chromebook, MacBook, and something else (I forget, everyone I know has a Mac). Everyone gets the same options


I’m in finance and I was told not to get a chrome book.

For reference I’ve been here 4 years and most folks have macs!

Would anyone be interested in getting help with interview prep? I know so many people that struggle with interviewing. I have heard a number of people mention that they have ADHD (which I do as well) and that has caused them a lot of difficulty in interviews which made me wonder if that is something that would be helpful and useful to people. I would love some insights and feedback!

Is this a red flag? - I interviewed for a financial analyst role with a company -

Had several rounds of interviews back in May, all signs pointed to that they all loved my resume and personality and I made a great impression. I was told that the role was on hold due to “beaucracy” but the hiring manager from the role has kept in touch. He then reached out to me yesterday asking if I’m still interested and want to move forward..no offer letter, just gauging my interest.

What would be your take?

Hi TCSers,

I got 3.71 overall IPF for my Final Aniversary Scheduled for 1st March. I got DCA cleared and my DOJ is 18th March 2021.
