June 18th: Jake Hirsch-Allen, North America Workforce Development and Higher Education System Lead at LinkedIn - You have an interview coming up that you are really qualified for, however, in the posting, it specifically mentions knowledge in A/B testing or Scrum or maybe there will be an evaluation on excel. Sure, you know this stuff, but how well do you really know it? Maybe you are second-guessing your knowledge or aren't on top of the buzz terms of the day in the industry.
