Pronouns: she/her (but also happy with they/theirs)

It is ironic that this is illustrated with a picture of Spock.

Because I often yell at the TV when Spock is excessively precise at the expense of accuracy.

Don’t quote those long fucking decimals in front of me, mister. Tell me about the fucking error bars.

7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

Yes! We wanna see you asking these things, and it’s fine to ask them over again with different people too.

….

Reblogging again to mention some other good questions/questions I hear a lot.

"What do you like least about this job?" / "What would you change about the job if you could?"

(I try to be thoughtful and candid, but, like, I’m trying to sell the job to the candidate almost as much as they are trying to sell themself to me? So it hits the same awkward place as when interviewers ask candidates what they’re bad at.)

"What does your average day look like?" / "What would my average day look like?"

Which one you choose depends on who is interviewing you. If you’re being interviewed by someone in the role you’re interviewing for or something similar, the first one can elicit a more genuine answer. But especially if you’re being interviewed by someone in management for a non-management role you might want to go the second route. Lately I have spent a lot of time telling entry-level candidates “but you would spend a lot less time writing design docs and a lot more time writing code! I promise!”

"How do people on this team manage their work-life balance?" (or even "How do you manage YOUR work/life balance?" though that can put the interviewer on the spot more)

This question is SO important and I am always so happy when people ask it. So many people are afraid it will make them look like a jerk who doesn’t have a job yet and already wants to know about vacation.

But it is SO CENTRAL to a lot of teams’ culture, and it’ll be a major factor in your life if you get the job, so go for it. But definitely focus it around “what are things like for you?” / “what are things like in the team culture?” and not “what would things be like for me?” if only because that will probably make you feel less weird asking it.

"Can you tell me about any other teams I’d be working with?"

Actually I think I’ve only ever heard this when interviewing people for internal transfers, but I think it’s a super good question. Your life will likely not just be the specific team you’re interviewing for, but will instead be closely mixed up with any number of related groups. Always good to learn who they are, and how they divide work up between them.

Captain Uhura should have been a thing 

(via S.T. Enterprise D Bridge Restoration)

EPIC.

I have a headcanon that Admiral Uhura lived to a ripe old age as the Starfleet Director of Intelligence. And she would have fought and undermined Section 31 long before it was safe to acknowledge its existence. She taught regular symposiums (and not just at the Academy) on universal translators and how despite the technology, you still needed to have living polyglot translators for the hard stuff. 

She was Picard’s Seminar in Translator Algorithms professor for about three classes and advised him to just take Klingon to get the required xenolinguistics credit out of the way. He did, but he still sat in on her class.

She also played in the Vulcan equivalent of a jam band and had a quiet off and on Thing with Spock that McCoy adamantly did not want to hear about. 

There.

Headcanon accepted.
