I’ve been at my current job at Facebook for about a year. After somebody has been with the company for 9 months, they typically start participating in the interview process for their respective team. For the last 3 months, I’ve been speaking to candidates from across the world, trying to determine if they’d be a good fit for our content… Show more
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Warren Buffet’s 25-5 rule. If you’re not familiar, it’s a simple exercise to help you figure out the things that matter to you most. You make a list of 25 things you want to achieve in your life, and circle five of them. Then, you instantly forget about the other 20—and focus only on achieving your top five. The… Show more

We can definitely help you with that, Jeffrey! Some schools require their students to complete Salt Courses at this point in the financial aid process. After you finish the lesson part of the course, you'll take an exam to demonstrate your knowledge. (When you pass, you'll get a certificate, which your school may or may not need to see; ask…
"Sir, don’t worry. Everything will be OK. I just need your bank account or credit card information. Please sir, take your time.” Those words finally made me realize it: I was caught in a consumer fraud hostage situation. How did I get here? All I did was click on a software download link.
