Well said. You can always spot the folks here who have actual hiring experience.

It's like a relationship... there's no such thing as perfect. If you think that you're gonna die alone.

Work Ethic is what I look for. If you can bash your way to learning Angular, that is good enough.

You can spend all your time humiliating people, or you can cut to the chase.

Yeah exactly. Especially when most interviewers just Google stuff to ask before the interview anyway. For systems programming I do think algorithms are important actually. But for most LOB jobs... nope. In the past I've aimed for personality, work ethic, and overall competency. We can always Google the algorithms this day and age if we ever get stuck. You can't teach personality.

Yup. Anyone in this industry long enough knows that devs have the expectation you're not allowed to have a life or family. You're supposed to spend your life 24/7 behind the computer on the off chance someone asks you a question you may not know the answer too. Shudder the thought. It's sad really because those devs rarely learn how to actually work with actual humans.
