Leaked Valve Employee Handbook?

PC Gamer reproduces what's purported to be a handbook for new employees at Valve, the privately held video game developer that created Half-Life half a lifetime ago. This appears to be bona fide, and offers additional details and insights on the company's unusual hierarchy and way of conducting business.

Experience requirements are often designed to cull people who wouldn't apply due to a lack of confidence... apply regardless.

Fair enough. I've been working on some portfolio-type stuff since finishing my Master's, and maybe that will be enough for me. After all, beyond the experience requirements, the job details seem right up my area of expertise (I've mostly been applying for positions as an economist/analyst, an econometrician, or a statistician).

Just frustrating, but at this point, what have I got to lose? Guess I just continue on with my philosophy at this point - "keep sending applications until somebody gives me reason to stop".
