Episode Info: The Ruby Blend - Episode 18Welcome to The Ruby Blend! The guys catch up on what's been going on this week. Ron has been taking an insurance class with his work to learn the ins and outs of the insurance industry, Nate's been busy working with Code Fund becoming an independent company, and Andrew has been on the interviewing circuit trying to find a new job. This leads us to the topic of today's episode, which is "Interviewing." The guys chat all about all the different things they've experienced over the years with the interviewing process and all the different things they've encountered with finding new jobs over the years. They do have some bits of advice to share as well. Andrew lets us know what he's been having to do currently with his interviewing process. And why is Andrew not allowed to go bowling anymore?
