      Lol - maybe an explanation why? I don’t want to “refer” a consultant or auditor or whatever you do at EY to my partner/HR/finance team/… if it’s just to cold call.

      I have an interview tomorrow where I get to ask questions to the interviewers. I usually ask questions like “how long have you worked here” “what’s your fav thing about working here” along with the obvious “what would be your expectations of me and how do you measure it” any other good ideas for questions?
