Mostly good advice but don't use Garamond. The other fonts are better. 

As someone who's doubled our eng team in the last 4 months and plans to double it again over the next 6, I don't like any of this advice.  

Obviously, the intended audience is not engineers. Tech recruiting is totally different than most industries.  Every single keyword above is something I ignore...

The only one that stood out was "speaks confidently in public".  

Which is interesting because "speaks confidently in public" is not a trait I think of as common to describe engineers.

I guess with engineers you mostly look for tech keywords like Go and JavaScript.

At least you can agree with the font choices above. :)
