  1. Having a Type-A personality, according to Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman, the men who coined the term in 1959, means: having a permanent sense of urgency and being hyperactive, high-strung, and a card-carrying workaholic.
  2. Go to swank schools and get straight A’s.
  3. Win some robotics and race-car design competitions. Mechanical engineering genius a plus.
  4. Get published in some juried scientific reviews and score some invites to world-class sci-tech congresses – that puts you on the radar of Musk’s recruiters.
  5. Say Yes when invited to a bar for a SpaceX interview
  6. Make the short list by surviving a raft of ferocious cuts.
  7. Draft your why-I-want-to-work-for-you essay to Elon Musk
  8. Interview with Musk in person (30 seconds to 15 minutes). Don’t worry if he doesn’t even look up from his email, then fires a single (or a dozen) questions at you.
  9. Correctly answer the famous Musk riddle: “You’re on the Earth’s surface. You walk 1 kilometer south, 1 km west, 1 km north. You’re back where you started. Where are you? Answer: “The North Pole.” Musk: “Where else could you be? Answer: “Right around the South Pole.”
  10. High five! Welcome to SpaceX! Your new workweek is 90 hours.
