Rules of Thumb: • In some cases, very similar to tech interviews • In other cases, drastically different • Must know your audience (what’s the company, what’s the position and who is interviewing you) • You are being given a very valuable slice of a very finite pie, act (and dress) accordingly • Let the founders know you are serious.
