  • RE: Career paths are usually twisted

    This article impressed me deeply.
    A CV is essential for getting a job and a good VC will makes you stand out from the competition. But almost no one ever wrote challenges, struggles and depressed feelings in a CV, because it's really not necessary. So a place where we can share our twisted past is meaningful, which will let others know that we are all struggling.

    Competing Interests: None declared.
