      Blind should literally filter PII from posts. Isn’t this the company based on ?

      He probably created a throw away alias.

      Throwaway alias for a college email address? Is it that easy to generate?

      Yes. I get 3 aliases that I can change any number of times on my school email.

      Probably way less than yours. But enough to focus on more important things in life :)

    Are you financially stable based on savings/equity? Study up and hit the big dawgs. Show them what years in the industry gave you.

      what does being financially stable have to do with hitting the big dawgs?

      Where should we start to research about what to study? What is hitting big dawgs?

      @aquan Not sure if you got the gist, the way I took it , is be confident and start looking what you are worth .. and if you are somewhat financially stable one big thing to worry less about at lest until you land on your next job .

      I wish I was one of those lousy guys .. :)

    • I'm speculating, but it sounds like the OP worked at Tesla on Enterprise erp systems (probably warp). If so he likely was laid off in July and his severance ran out in September.

      Good speculation! Still interviewing with other teams .. hoping you can help?

      We've all been laid off once or will be some day! We lose nothing by paying it forward.

      So true I helped so many during lay-offs / let -go paying it forward is so true .

    Do resumes need to be changed every time when applied for a different role to match the description ? Any thoughts?

    • Netflix MCDJ12
      Yes. Even if it’s two different roles at the same company. Otherwise, see above post.
      Oct 30, 2018
    • Marvell Username45
      Yes. Spend 5-15 min on making it relevant to the job description.
