re: You want HOW MANY years experience?! VIEW POST


Good question!

I think in the example you've given, it's worth listing them separately.

To be honest, I would never expect a recruiter to take this page at all seriously, but if you were using it to find Drupal 8 developers, and experience with Drupal 8 is key, then it makes sense for them to be split out.


Thanks for the quick reply!
I think this tool is gonna start living a life of it's own, so I'd anticipate on that by defining some guidelines, if you have the time to do that.
It is mostly cool because now I can just reference a site when recruiters call me with impossible demands :D

What have I done?

It's alive!

That's a really good idea, though, I'll try to carve out some time for it.

Thanks, Dieter!


Except for the job I mentioned there: I had no Drupal 8 experience on my resume.

But I was better at it than anyone they had employed before. Years of experience doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Yes and no. If you'd had to choose between somebody that knew a framework inside/out or somebody with no experience, you'd choose the first person anytime like most recruiters/interviewers probably would. Unless you have similar and relevant experience, like e.g. for Drupal 8, it would be Symfony mostly.
