If you look inside “your deepest core” and all you see is “hard work”, I’d schedule some time with a psychotherapist before worrying about applying for a new job.

I commend InEvent for quickly scrubbing their job description of the most toxic garbage, but what's left just doesn't make a lot of sense: "You must like to work... if you don't believe that is the case, please don't apply". Do they get that many applicants not wanting to work?!

Also: Why you should not work with us. Point 1: We are always learning something new. I mean, what? Who are all these candidates who read about a company "learning something new" and going OH, THAT'S NOT FOR ME! NOOOOPE.

You can follow @dhh.
