What are some things I should ask before OE?

Need some help with the thought process
Solution:
- are you willing to keep j1 on your resume, or are you going to hide it? (this is a loaded question) - are you going for a w2 role, or a 1099 role? - how is your workload for j1 right now? - do you understand that you may need a good tech setup to handle conflicting meetings? - do you think you'll be the type who will tackle conflicting meetings, or are you senior enough to push them all?...

- are you willing to keep j1 on your resume, or are you going to hide it? (this is a loaded question) - are you going for a w2 role, or a 1099 role? - how is your workload for j1 right now? - do you understand that you may need a good tech setup to handle conflicting meetings? - do you think you'll be the type who will tackle conflicting meetings, or are you senior enough to push them all? - Are you going for a more junior role, or find a role with the same level? - are you willing to find a job in a similar industry (because it's easier), but you understand the risk that anyone can switch from your j1 to j2 in that case? - how micromanagey is your team/manager? - how "googleable" and "bingable" are you? especially when you pair it with your J1? - do you know what TWN is, and how background checks generally work? - are you aware that you will need to lie to employers? And aware that many employers will NOT be okay with you working another job? - are you willing to risk losing one or both jobs? (yes, this is something ALMOST EVERYONE who OE's generally need to accept as a risk) - Yes, you're able to double up on insurance, 401k, ESPP - Yes, there is always a nonzero inherent risk to having j1 on your resume when you apply for j2
