So I got fired from a help desk job after 4 days with zero warning and vague reason. The only reason given was 'behavioral differences'. What sucks the most is that I wasn't even treated like a person in the termination process, they just showed up after my lunch to say "it's not working out" and in less than a minute of me asking questions in a shocked state was escorted out by an armed security guard. After reanalyzing the company, there was a lot of red flags that screamed "don't work here".

Follow up with questions whenever you feel like you've admitted a weakness in an interview. I was once asked if I know a language, answered that I'm learning it and am through concepts XYZ. The interviewer went "so you're at a basic level" to which I agreed. I later got an offer based on other skills, so I guess all's well that ends well. But when I started the job, I found out that no one else on the team has even heard of XYZ 🤦 Missed opportunity to rebound an interview point.

August 27, 2019 - Wall Street Journal This Little Black Box Does Heavy Lifting for Wall Street As the speed and complexity required of trading desks increases, some banks, including UBS outsource some of their technology. Every day, about 10% of all orders sent to the US stock market first pass through black boxes created by a 50-person technology company, Hyannis Port Research Inc. in Needham, Mass.
May 8, 2020 - Boston Inno - HPR pledges not to lay off employees Anthony Amicangioli, founder and CEO of Hyannis Port Research (HPR), was born into a crucible. Amicangioli's first startup experience happened just about two decades ago, at the turn of the century. He was the founder of Zetari, a startup that specialized in building equipment cloud computing before cloud computing was the staple of the software world it is today. Officially started in 1999, Zetari managed to raise $3.4 million in financing. The team had a successful working product. They demonstrated it at Interop in Las Vegas to great fanfare. Then, the dot-com bubble burst. "The beginning of 2001, I'll never forget, U.S. v. Microsoft was announced," Amicangioli recalled. "The stock market just went down and down and down. That was the dot-com blowout."
