I love this post! Especially these two points...

It is about honesty
It is about the mindset

I got my first job (HTML Intern) in tech in the mid-90s by saying "I don't know anything, but I'll work really hard." That was mostly honest, I showed up with a printout (it was the 90s) of a simple site I had written in pure HTML.

I asked that manager a few years later why he hired me and he said, basically, that it was my honesty and mindset.
