What I meant was this bowl was only active for a few days where people posted questions in advance and Eric spent 1-2 rounds to answer all of them. That day was a long time ago. Eric prob wont answer any more questions now since you posted so late

I really wish you were able to spend a day at an agency, just observing, sitting in on meetings etc. During the interview process. They ask to see your work, wish we can ask to see HOW they work

Do you send emails to your interviewers after the interview? What do you usually write? Does that change if you are pretty sure you did poorly?
