Wonderful post, Nick. I'm seeking my first dev role and I have had to turn down a couple offers that largely involved skills that I have no interest in building. One such position advertised for a developer, but is actually more editorial and content-management. I was like: So WHY did you ask for a developer???
This is where I prefer an initial phone interview. I get to ask questions to find out if it's worth my time and theirs to go for an in person interview.
