Good stuff. My only objection is, as a hiring manager, I don't really care what format the resume is in. With me, candidates can use a text file, word or a napkin if it's clear. Just help me understand your education, career track, any key projects and passions.

It should be a bigger part of one's happiness factor to believe in your companies mission. If you don't, you feel like there is no point/goal to your work. Good article.

Should is a dirty word. When you use it in that way, you're applying your own emotional perspective to everybody and hiding it under some sort of imperative. You shouldn't do that ;)

Loved Founder and CTO of Krux Digital: “When you apply to a startup, you need to be prepared to talk about your ability to wear multiple hats and get sh*t done."

Funny to see Facebook now included with "cushy jobs" like Microsoft and Google. What do people at FB think about that? :-)

Well... where's the risk anymore at FB. And where's the meaningful equity upside for new hires there now? I'd say it qualifies as "cushy".
