Appendix 4 - Getting a Job in Engineering #


"Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?"

[TODO] literally this entire page is TODO. I’m just making it as a place to dump links for now. Eventually I’d like to talk about why most interview processes suck, the high no-response rate, certifications vs degree, how to write a résumé, cover letter, start up culture, non-compete clauses, fake glassdoor listings, Linked in BS, all the things.

THIS WILL NOT BE A PLACE TO LINK TO SPECIFIC JOBS. DO NOT EVEN TRY TO SUBMIT A PR WITH THAT.
