I giggled with the PhD a bit. I don't have one I gave up after two years... They gave me a MPhil Based on the impact my work had.

Anyway funny thing is that 3 years ago (I am 41 btw) I went to an interview with nearly 12 years of experience in the industry and a few years in academia (like 2ish) ..and they told me that my CV feels too academic and they don't like academic mindset.

I was like wtf? Happens

Geez, that sucks. Hope you found somewhere better. Developer interviewing can be so random.

I would be really surprised if I didn't. To be fair most companies don't care about that ..that much, it's just another qualification it's not something that necessarily defines you

'feels too academic' === 'we risk to have some thinking mind rather than a code monkey'
