"We Help The Daring Build Legendary Companies..."

Pros

The headline is a nod to our mission: we help the daring build legendary companies, from idea to IPO and beyond. I mention this first because it highlights something that is somewhat distinctive

Cons

Imposter syndrome. All of us have it. Each of us looks around and thinks "I am the weak link; I'm just lucky to be here".

  1. Executive Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Sequoia Capital (Menlo Park, CA) in Sep 2021

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me saying they needed to hire 2-3 EAs within two months. I interviewed for their first round and questions were so long drawn out and didn't ask much about behavioral questions. For a 30min timeframe of the interview, they took 15 mins explaining themselves and the role which gives you little to no time left to tell them about yourself and ask questions at the end. I do not recommend.
    Interview

    1) What' your EA superpower 2) Why Sequoia? 3) Think of a time you had difficulty persuading someone. What did you do?
