All that matters is how long you've done something. Not the quality of work. Not the knowledge or skills.

All that matters is how long you've done something. Not the quality of work. Not the knowledge or skills. Just the number of years of experience on the resume. Someone can completely suck at something for 20 years yet will get hired over someone who actually knows what they're doing. Sure, nepotism and cronyism can make up for it, but not even networking and connections does any good. They either tell you to apply online if they bother to respond at all. What has the job search come to?

    Before you get to a technical interview, how do you quantify any skill reliably except in years of experience? Sure, you can self-assign 1-10 scores, but those skills still have to be tested before a hire. Do you want recruiters to start requiring people to put leetcode scores in their resumes?

      I think the first step should be a technical interview. And only those who pass can send their resumes. That would work better than looking at resumes and determining who gets a technical interview.

        That is not feasible for the number of applicants to any given position

          Yet sending resumes somehow is? Technical assessments and tests before sending the resume would work better

            Resumes can be analyzed quickly to find promising candidates. Any technical assessment would need to be able to be done via objective automated testing so the results can be collated up front.

            The point of the technical assessment is eliminate the need of years requirement.

      You can give a very simple test to make sure the candidate isn't bullshitting. No need to do anything complex or else you'd get leetcode grinders who are just good at studying and memorizing solutions.
      From there simply select at random because the rest is equivalent to palm reading and horoscopes. There is also good chance that HR is so moronic they'll actually filter out excellent candidates and select based on mediocrity so you want to eliminate that element all together

          What...no?!? That's not what my post was saying at all. Can you even read? I said the opposite of that. I said that people who do nothing and sit around for 20 years are the people who get hired over the people who have worked let's say 5 years and actually know what they're doing. Also college degrees don't even matter or make a difference. I know how woke and a joke colleges have become these days. Just another thing millennials were lied to about.

    Everything is a filter. Years of experience is the lowest filter in the filter hierarchy. You graduated with a CS degree in the wrong year, sorry life sucks go cry with everyone that graduated college in 2008-2009

    yeah but years will only get you so far. after around 6 years connections become progressively more relevant than mere seniority
    it may sound unfair, but think about it this way, more than half of the economy in the developed countries consists of, essentially, money lending, speculation, arbitration, and straight out ponzi schemes
    in this context, sociability and commitment are more valuable than actually producing stuff

    I've applied to 67 jobs in the past week. Yes, a grand total of two days. The search has been going on for months. I have a degree, a long and difficult blue-collar work history, and I keep writing these happy, hopeful cover letters, bullshitting about how excited I am to be blah blah whatever. Nobody gets back to me, nobody gives me a chance. Even if they would, I know they'll immediately run when they hear that I have a minor criminal record.

    Time to face the music. I'm a fricking loser who will never amount to anything. I'll never own a home, have a family, or do anything of any importance to anyone. I would run off and live in the woods like some Joe Rogan mountain man moron if I thought it would actually change anything, but it won't. I put myself down if I thought it would change anything, but it won't. I just want something to change, I just want things to be different, but I know nothing will happen.

        At least you're lucky enough to get a response. I've been lied to by everyone, friends, family, professors, employers, the cops, the fricking military, everyone who was ever supposed to be a source of support or direction in my life has been a lying snake that wants for nothing but themselves.
        Y'know what I learned in jail? I learned that the only honest men in the world are fricking incarcerated, they're trampled upon by the world. To my shock and horror, they were the only ones I've ever met who actually took responsibility for their actions, the only fricking ones. They were the only ones to offer me genuine encouragement, the only ones who seemed to understand, the only fricking ones who didn't judge me so harshly.
        I want to have hope, but all I feel is contempt towards everyone around me. I wish I wouldn't feel this way, but the truth of the matter always seems to rear its head; that is, that nobody gives a frick.

          This pretty much describes my life. Have been to lied to by literally everyone since childhood but high school and college were the worst offenders.
          >just go to college and you'll be successful
          >our degree is so prestigious all our college graduates get amazing jobs, just network with alumni, bro
          College did nothing for me. The only way I have ever get jobs is happening to luck out with some random IT director I added on LinkedIn. Most of the time that doesn't even work.

          While I've never been to jail or incarcerated, an extended relative did and had a similar experience. The society built in prisons and jails is much better than the society outside of it. I'm not sure what I even want to do in life anymore.

            Don't go saying that, you don't want that. They may be honest, they may take responsibility for their actions with a smile, but they're still dangerous. Maybe it's that innate honesty that allows them to be honest with themselves, and follow through where others wouldn't. I think there's something beautiful there, but they're still dangerous.
            Still, the honesty is refreshing when you've lived a life of one lie after another. Being a convict has been far less humiliating than being a student or a marine, and I use the present tense because you never stop being a convict. No matter what you do, no matter how far you run, no matter how much good you do, no matter how many of your vices you shake off, the normies, the civilians, they will always, ALWAYS see you as an outsider, as a threat, as a pariah.
            Do your best to be a good man, and don't poeticize the kind of hell that I'm in. The only sort of mercy I can beg for is God's, and even that's met with silence.
