I don't mind being that chance. Afterall, someone was there to take a chance on me once (and a few jobs since).

You are a good person, I really appreciate your willingness to take a chance on people. The standards for entry-level developers are getting higher by the second and it is really comforting to see people like you.

I think a lot of companies want people with so much experience because they think it will lower their costs. What they forget is experience !== good. A lot of experience but no direction might get the job done, but it might also bring in a lot of bad habits. Especially in a junior role.
