Good advice, but better served to figure out of the company is a good fit
for you. I've had more than my fair share of job hunting, and I'm at the
point where I'm not going to change who I am or mask my personality and
disposition just to get a job. Will I submit a completely off-the-wall
resume? No. But I won't be jumping through hoops (on paper or in person) to
appear to be a perfect fit in a company that is nothing like who I am or
how I work.
