Not really a talking point, but spend more time actually listening than talking

1) Info about your firm 2) Info about you personally and professionally 3) Your process and what sets you apart 4) Fee/commission structure 5) Expectations Then open it up and start the barrage of questions. Try to find commonality and zero in on hot button topics. Take notes when needed

When your mother wants to have a condescending argument when I tell her that I’m not qualified for the “creative director” position she sent from craigslist. Then continues to say, ‘well you don’t know until you try’. When I tell her I’m not qualified, she responds, ‘okay well you’re not qualified lets move on to a other topic’. Considering I’m a recently laid off junior, and she doesn’t seem to understand the ladder of career development. 🙄🙄🙄 Save me!

Looking to exit consulting. Currently an analyst in SF and I will be applying for roles in big tech (FB, Google, Square, etc). Since I have multiple areas of interest, is it okay to apply to multiple job positions at these firms since they are so large, or should I stick with only one or two roles?
