Discussion on: You're not worth hiring unless...

This is so true. Not just for the big players in the house either; small-ish companies somehow got it in their head that for a dev to be worth a damn, they must know RoR, Python, PHP, React, Vue, AND Angular. It so frustrating when searching for a job and literally a dozen emails come through with “You’re a great match” sentiments. When I get to the HackerRank portion of the interview process, I feel inadequate because I don’t have all of the skills of the Unicorn Dev they are seeking. References and proven track records are meaningless. It’s driving good, experienced people out of the industry.
