8 Reasons to Turn Down That Startup Job
I loved working for a startup right out of school, but a lot of the points in this essay/article/list ring really true, especially about not having a design mentor. I had a couple mentors (business and development) at the startup job that were incredibly helpful and shaped who I am as a designer, but I never had someone who had been designing software their whole career who could tell me when I was wrong. So I figured a lot of stuff out along the way. Anyway, excellent thoughts in that article - gave me a lot to think about.
