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

Same thing happened to me with them. I've been in the industry for over 10 years and was relatively over-qualified for the position they were hiring for (I just wanted to work in a small town and they were the only tech company there). Revature is a joke company. You dodged a HUGE bullet.

I just wanted to work in a small town

This is a problem myself and I know many others.
10+ years experience but the small-town companies are so far removed from the tech industry latest standards they can't even recognize that you're high-quality talent.

The only way I'll be able to work in small-town with high salaries is running my own company and in honest it will be my employees who will get that benefit not me.

Thank you. I thought I was crazy for a while. They make it seem so nice but, I'm glad to know it was a blessing in disguise.
