  1. Linkedin review before interview

    When I receive an email from an agency confirming that I have an interview with project manager X , is it a good idea to look at X's Linkedin profile to get an idea who is interviewing me. Sometimes I notice that X has already looked at mine.

  15. IR35 review for non uk contract

    Would you get an Ir35 review done for say a German agency contract? Would you bother with ensuring contract falls outside ir35 if it's a foreign client? Does it matter ? Having a hard time explaining why I'm being anal about certain clauses to the German agent.
