warning: these are my own *personal* opinions, not google's or amazon's or anyone else's. i do think you'll find that most resume screeners at tech companies — particularly tech companies that build their own software in-house, like yahoo! or ebay or amazon.com or microsoft or google — will agree with a lot of this stuff, on the whole. but experienced screeners disagree on lots of the little details, and in the end these are just my own opinions. these tips are not guaranteed to get you any better results. your mileage may vary. do not use these tips in a bathtub or when standing in a pool of water. do not tap on the glass or the tips will be irritated. do not feed the tips. etc.
