Ever wondered what it'd be like to work in IT or development for a company such as Zappos, Hulu, Facebook, or NASA? Now you can with Dice.com's site Best Job Ever. The site has video interviews with over 20 top techies at many of the world's most admired companies.
One of the things I really like about the videos, or at least the few I watched, is that they go beyond just a cutesy look at the fancy swivel chairs or other creative nuances that many of these tech companies sport. They also talk about the technical specifications of what a day in the life really looks like, what types of platforms the companies are using for their sites and why, and how technology and business come together to make these products and services work.

At the very least, the videos are entertaining, but I think many of you might also find them useful for thinking about your vision for your own personal development.
