How to Get Any Job You Want (even if you’re unqualified)
Raghav Haran

Terrific post which has made me look at the hiring process completely differently.

A quick question: you say that for bigger companies (Microsoft, Amazon, etc) it might be best to wait until you get an interview before doing the project. But how about in situations where reaching the interview stage is by no means guaranteed? Would it be advisable to do the project, then mention it in the paper application?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
