What are your general comments?

"Advice: stay loose and act like you are just meting a colleague or family member for coffee. The interview is VERY informal, the interviewer just wants to have a genuine conversation with you. Keep your file/CV/script handy to refer to (assuming its on zoom) just incase but don't stress about hitting every talking point. Just let the conversation flow." Report Response
