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?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!
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."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.
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.
