One of my friends is considering a job switch. He made an updated resume and sent it to various software companies.
Friend: "I feel like Silicon Valley judges your resume less by your actual skills and more on how hot your current company is."
Me: "Hehe, you have a point there."
Friend: "I bet some recruiters aren't even reading the resume carefully. They just see how much hotness jumps off the page."
Me: "Yes, you should take advantage of your current hotness."
Friend: "They're asking themselves, 'Is this mildly scalding, or is it a supernova in my eye?'"
