Submission + - Steve Blank: No One Cares About Your Education (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: "Retired entrepreneur and Stanford professor, Steve Blank, recalls in a blog post how a recruiter once suggested he fudge a degree on his resume to land a plum job. He didn't do it, got the job, and to this day doesn't include an education section on his resume. The fact that he has no college degree is part of the reason, but also if your're using your education to catch the attention of whoever is filtering resumes, you might as well use the space to mention your Mensa membership. Better yet, let your work experience do the talking."

Comment Re:Not just meth (Score 5, Funny) 757

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.

Sorry, couldn't resist. One of my all-time favorite quotes. :-)
