So, I do work with the group very often. I was already on two calls with the guy who would be hiring me this morning. I have known him for almost a decade so it some ways it is awkward, but there's always stuff in a job that you don't know about and that's the stuff I am a bit afraid of.

The job is different, in some ways easier, in some ways harder. It doesn't go against any ethical code. Furthermore if there's one thing you must know about teh Booth, is teh Booth can be bought!
Is there anyone in the role now, or who was formerly in the role, who you could ask to outline the pros and cons of the job?


"I know this role does X and Y as I have interacted with the team in this capacity. What else blah blah blah..." The more I work in my current role, the more I see curiosity as a good trait in a candidate. I can teach tasks as companies vary but I cannot make someone curious which is driving me mad currently.



Save your run until after texmex in which case you can binge then purge.
I've been hired because I asked the right questions in the interview and I'll hire people for the same reason. The advice I always give people going through an interview process: learn their business well enough to ask the question(s) that they need to ask themselves. Bonus points if they haven't thought of it already.

For my present job I called up several friends who are customers to ask the strengths and weaknesses of the product and was equipped with a list of questions before I spoke with anyone on the team.

This is 100% true, but there are a lot of people who interpret that advice as “ask questions that have been carefully crafted for no other reason than to make me look smart and i really don’t actually care about the answer”, and force me to continually field random questions about corporate strategy. Bitch, you’re being hired to shit out spreadsheets, you don’t need to give a shit about what keeps the CEO up at night

the person recently in the role was just promoted to the person in charge of the group. He was there for a while. It’s a tricky situation. The pros are he’s a great person who I’d really enjoy working for. Talking to some people in the company about this has calmed my nerves quite and bit and some intel has informed me he is most interested in somebody who is excited for the position not necessarily a clone of himself. I think I can show that.

There's this woman in my group who is a very loud nose breather. On top of that, at home she must have a hyper-sensitive headset setup, because the only thing I hear when she is on a call is her whistling, squeaky nose. It is driving me fucking crazy.

It's always interesting to read about crime news reports because a day-time shooting of even multiple rounds ought to be a traumatic or major event but in the US it's....eh just another day. Also, it's funny how much we know just by the proximity of the crime and yet because there's no motive and no one really to talk to the news can't really say that much.
