Pretty much.

I once believed that if my company ever failed that I could find another job easily. (21+ years of LOB apps for desktop and web) I thought that a resume with dozens of successful (still in use and still generating income) applications might be some strong evidence that I know what I'm doing. After all, programming is just about solving problems using the tools at hand...right?

It's sad, but in this field you have to study how to pass interviews... on top of what you already know. There so many people that interview well but suck at their actual job and vice versa.

we're expanding and very soon I'll likely be faced with hiring a jr. dev for some of the grunt work.

Glad to hear that man... especially considering the current issues of the world.
