NO RATINGS
I completely agree. But for a new grad, "problem solving" skills aren't likely to be the keywords that the automated system is looking for when screening resumes. So in addition to having a skill and a passion for solving problems, I think it's wise for a new EE graduate to have some of the expected acronyms and buzzwords on their resumes as well -- just to make sure the resume will make it to the stage where a human being actually looks at it.

in addition to understanding nodding, the funny story also goes with not tripping over your own ego. And taking risks. That situation could have worked out very badly for him.
