I have several ongoing series about recruitment: Gullible Young and Looking for dev partner.

— — —

I see many words in job offers looking for a partner, using words that convey strong inequality.

As a super-idea businessman talking to a just-a-tool developer:

  1. You will be a probationary partner
  2. I don’t get your world, and I don’t want to
  3. I’m looking for a partner because I can’t pay
  4. I’m not confident this idea will pay soon enough
  5. I didn’t make the effort of understanding you

So, really: come to meet us first in a relaxed setup, watch and listen. It’s as simple as: get respected by respecting others.
