I'm likewise miserable in my current gig. Got a screener interview on Monday for a fantastic opportunity, but I'm so stressed and worn out its going to be tough to muster the fake enthusiasm it needs.
The HR screener won't care that much. Plus, everyone is so desperate it won't matter.

Lol I guess I have to respect a company that makes quadruple sure they are not hiring an edina.
We generally have 4-5 interviews for two reasons:
1. It gives all the various stakeholders some sense of buy in. On our team you're going to work with a lot of different teams, so having someone from the adjacent teams makes them feel like they have a say. It generally leads to a better starting relationship.

2. Sometimes people have a really good/bad interview, so it let's us normalize a bit. Plus it helps increase diversity of thought to get cross-functional member feedback.

The preferred nomenclature is "Inuit."
Esquimau


As a Canadian though, I thought you would know they are called "first nations"

Yeah, no. First Nations is a distinct category of indigenous people vs. Inuit.

Is it? I thought it was an all encompassing term

Like native American which covers, as far as I know, every type of tribe.

There's this thing called "Google" which you could use to prove my assertion incorrect...if you were so inclined.

No no, not challenging you just making a general comment of I thought it was something different.

The definition of "First Nations" is pretty much all indigenous folks that are not Inuit or Metis.

See above reference about dogs laying eggs.

Tendies,
The advantages of the Volvo xc90,
The nuances of anthropological classification in the great country of Canada,
A historical view of Pontiac Michigan night club scene in the mid to late 90s,

you are a veritable font of information!

I'm embarrassed to say that I am just learning this, and I've almost certainly referred to Inuit as First Nations in the past. Mea culpa.

The only reason I know is I've done some public health work on reservations, both in the US and Canada, earlier in my career. You don't know hopelessness and despondence until you visit some of these remote locations; it's really a blot on both countries.
