But What Do They See?

Steven Kneiser
2-minute read ⚠️ Work In Progress

Do you ever feel just plain unseen?
like nobody really gets you?

I’ve been there too

You must’ve sent 100+ applications
You’re starting to question your entire worth

“If only they took the time…“

like a friend who reads the same books,
watches the same movies,
& plays the same games,
but always draws the opposite conclusions


The job search isn’t a test of skill
as much as a test of communication

The burden of proof is on you, the burden of communication

If you’re hunting for jobs right now, you probably can’t afford the luxury of aggressively upskilling. The harsh truth is that you can’t cram the night before the exam.

If you need a job soon, focus less on improving your hire-ability & focus more on finding the right companies expanding the range & precision of your search


Take all the time you want to draft something up, but you better run it by people first. You want to keep stacking on layers of feedback like a delicious cake

“How could you say that?!
it’s clearly a duck”

Duck-Rabbit Illusion

…or is it a rabbit?

In case you didn’t notice, this is a famous illusion showing both a duck & rabbit (depending on which direction you look at it)


On the virtues of playtesting

“Sometimes the quickest way to find out what people want is to give them something they don’t”


So what do they see?

What happens when I Google your name?

How would I crawl around the internet
for more information on you?

Now that is your resume

⚠️ Full story: coming soon…

Is this very relevant to you?


Did I offer a clear next action?


Do you want more on this?


I love hearing your
thoughts & questions!
