I spent so many years learning my tricks. I want to see a newbie make the AJAX pages I make and make them always work.
I want to see a newbie that knows about the patterns to use to make an app maintainable. I work with a guy who is a better coder than I am but his code isn't designed to be maintainable. What is more valuable to a company since the largest cost of code is its maintenance? Heck, you can't even debug much of it let alone figure out what the error messages really mean. When there's an error, my code reports it, its location, the faulty data and who to blame for it.
I'm older but I just spent an enormous amount of time getting my AWS Architect cert, changing to git, and upgrading to .Net Core ... and we just got a manager that thinks Python is an enterprise language and that .Net only works on Azure.
Nah, I think experience is a valuable thing because it works.
