Google Co-founder's "hidden" code in his résumé... Career Objective: "A large office, good pay, and very little work. Frequent expense-account trips to exotic lands would be a plus."

An old copy of Google’s Sergey Brin’s résumé has surfaced, showcasing his work, research and hacks before he co-founded the search giant with Larry Page while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford back in 1998.

Brin, now worth $31 billion, buried his career objective in the document’s HTML code — right-click and select “inspect element” to view source code, and this pops up:
“Objective:< /H4> A large office, good pay, and very little work. Frequent expense-account trips to exotic lands would be a plus.–>” The résumé was posted on Hacker News Friday.

Clearly Sergey Brin's career objective has come true many times over, except for the "light work".  I guess it's the hacker's delight game of playing with hidden codes that makes this story interesting,  I'm guessing no current Applicant Tracking System (ATS) has anticipated the need to de-code "hidden codes" in résumés.  And if they did -- would the employer hold it against the author?

For Google's Co-Founder, Sergey Brin, that concern is mute point...
