One of the “hottest” FinTech startups Wealthfront also offers a career advice. Some time ago they have published a “Silicon Valley Career Guide” and recently blogged about “107 Career Launching Companies“. Both worth a read if it is of interest to you. Posting both here for your convenience.
An advice on how to frame your accomplishments in a smart way by Google People Operations VP:
“The key is to frame your strengths as: ‘I accomplished X, relative to Y, by doing Z.’ Most people would write a résumé like this: ‘Wrote editorials for The New York Times.’ Better would be to say: ‘Had 50 op-eds published compared to average of 6 by most op-ed [writers] as a result of providing deep insight into the following area for three years.’ Most people don’t put the right content on their résumés.”
Not many people will have the proper content to frame this way though.
