Hmmm.. these are some of the rules I can think of at the top of my head when I first started out.

1) I need to know everything in a job description to apply for a job.
Which is really a large portion of technologies that you need to learn as a developer.

2) I must be a genius developer to be a software developer professionally.
Which till this day, leaves me with the chills down my spine that I almost didn't pursue a developer job straight after university.

3) I need experience for an entry-level job
This is actually a catch 22, cause I had come across multiple entry-level jobs.

Which requires you to have from 2 - 5 years of experience. This practice is really insane and ridiculous that sometimes I wonder how out of touch are the person recruiting developers.
