While I was applying for a job yesterday, a peculiar thought hit me. Should I include my Wishlist with the application? This might seem awfully cocky of me. On the other hand, there are some good arguments for it. You can learn a lot about who someone is by the books they want to read.
- Am I interested in general programming, or just one problem domain?
- Do I seem like the sort of person you'd want to discuss things with over coffee?
- Am I ambitious?
I should hope that my list provides a good answer to all three.
