They Rejected Us(rejected.us)

    The problem here is that they assume that working at a place like Twitter or Facebook makes people jealous or amazed. I know people who work at big corporations, both inside and outside the tech world, who really hate it.

    It would be better if the stories were more like, "I was rejected by xxxx, but now I work at a great company doing work that satisfies me."

      Exactly. The best designers I know work for mostly under-the-radar companies/brands, and not necessarily trendy, tech companies like Twitter or Apple.

      I think this kind of encompasses a huge problem with the design world today. There are so many novice designers out there with zero experience, who validate their expertise by the 'brand' they work for, a blog post that went 'viral', or how many Twitter followers they have. It's a really a shame. Just do good work and get on with it.

      Think I'd rather clean toilets than work at FB, at least I'd be making the world a better place instead of actively making it worse.
