They are hiring wrong and it's unfortunate that people get impacted by the practice of the current trend, IMHO....

If you are a capable dev, you can always learn. May take a little longer but if they are good at running their team, department or company.... they should understand this.

Pick up traits of devs, not a particular framework sometimes. By traits, I mean different degrees of traits to get the fit correct. I can be risky at times at initial phases but near prod I have a good sense of risk. That is a good thing.

Some places just want the latest thing so they seem cutting edge or whatever. It seems pretentious and not necessarily the better solution for the need of the company or the problems at hand.
