I asked a friend at Netflix to refer for 2 open roles. I was just sent a rejection email from the recruiter. I didn't even talk to the recruiter🤷‍♂️

  • I had a similar experience at a few other companies. Forget about it, try somewhere else.

      Why would they call you to reject?
      A phone call shouldn't change their decision.

    Why work for a gaming company (says Nvidia, I know but we do muchhh more)? Tricking people into spending their conciousness and family time on arbitrary tasks in a virtual world for "coins" and points sound fulfilling to you?

      Is it really? More than any other industry that has way less conciousness stealing foundations (advertising companies like Google too)? 🤔

      It isn’t clear what your actual point is, other than it appears you are trying to be /r/iamverysmart against video games.

      Was just being taking a contrarian approach to the video games are cool and natural and healthy attitude that obviously EA/Blizzard need to sell.

      I'm sure you don't want to imagine this, but a world with -80% games without be a much more productive one.

      You’re right. Video games are the only way people distract themselves from being productive.

      O.o

      You're right, also the same -80% texting while driving would bring much more productivity and health to the world too.

      We should start a nonprofit!
