Beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder.

Have you looked at "Land the Tech Job You Love" by the Pragmatic label?
Chapter 1 might be free and well worth the read, approx 10 pages.

Something that strikes me about your emails is that you're focused on your
wants and needs. Which is important. But a job is ultimately a trade: you
give up X in return for Y.

Grad school these days is no different; admissions DO actively look for
that X, even if that X is different from that of a commercial setting.

Think about what those X's might be -- as in, what does the other party
want. Feel free to continue the convo on this list!
