    last year i saw a 10 year+ android development experience hiring. i checked recently and they are still hiring

    Senior dev co-worker currently has "20+ years experience with ASP.NET" listed on his LinkedIn. Right.

    @minimango ASP 1.0 was released on Dec 1996 so he's only a few months away from some kind of accuracy 😂
  • 13
    @jirehstudios Except ASP != ASP.NET.
  • 8
    @dewmsolo Maybe he tries to argue that the experience in ASP transfers over to ASP.NET...somehow.
  • 4
    @jirehstudios Yeah that's what I thought too. I disagree with that mentality though.
  • 4
    That's great stuff. Funny thing is most hiring managers probably wouldn't even notice it and only devs would

    Dodged a bullet then. I don't want to be a part of a company where the people building the team don't have a decent understanding of the technologies they're looking to work with.

    Well, at least Lattner is qualified. 😒

    @jirehsrudios: Maybe, but this was almost a year ago. This is the same guy I've been getting most of my rants from. He is the worst. :D

    He/she should realized why history is really important specially with the dates.
  • 3
    I see this in a different way ur boss just wants to hire someone with 5+years experience in a couple of year! He is just forward thinking.
  • 4
    I smell "poaching" signs. Maybe he is indirectly trying to say: "if you have worked at Apple and developed Swift, we need you! Just like we hired somebody from GitHub to help our team learn Git." :P

    This is what happens when your recruiter is 22 yo girl, college graduate with a degree in English literature, who's starting her career in tech HR at the agency of (presumably) her uncle.
    This is a true example based on personal experience.

    keep this up vote to 404
  • 2
    Seems like there's an error in there

    Yes hearing the same from the off target recruiters. And the job is in Iowa - I am in NY 😀
  • 2
    @Jumpshot44 that's great since the job I was talking about was in new York and I start a job in Iowa next week...
  • 2
    that's the same case with the React Js with 5+ years of experience along with node and other stuff too :)
  • 2
    @sam21s it's 404 but 404 got a 404 response so it's showing some other number
  • 1
    @vikaskr lol you are too late mate... it was 404 when I commented

    This whole thing is definitely errored somehow

    This happens way too much. Do a proper research before asking, recruiters!

    If this rant stays near the top of "all" top posts, then in a few years it won't be immediately apparent why it's a rant.
  • 0
    @simis2626 I was surprised it went this high in the first place and have thought a few times it is going to outdate soon
  • 0
    @jirehstudios in much the same way one would argue that experience in Java transfers over to JavaScript.
  • 2
    That's what happens when HR's decide the Job Description.

    I think they wanzt to hire Apple interns

    Next year this rant will have expired. :3

    @xorith yeah already talked to the recruiter, now he's asking for 10+ 👍

    This may be the alcohol talking. And yes. This Monday was that hard. But may this rant live on my friend.

    Saw the same with Spark.

    i have seen ads , saying "We are hiring Swift Devlopers, Must have 8+ year experience with swift", from where does this people come from, time travel ?
  • 0
    @rootDaemon lol yeah hadn't mentioned that, as time increases so do the requirements. Better be an OG Dev
  • 1
    Checking back in, this will be possible for people who weren't on the dev team for swift next year.
  • 1
    lool
  • 1
    Does this mean they want to hire apple employees (or people of the swift team)? lol

    Student: This would be my first job, I'm 18y.

    Employer: For this junior position we require 20y+ experience.

    He might want people with experience in ornithology. Alternatively, he might be a hare-brain.

    Every times....everytime....
    Every. Single. Time.
    Happened. So. Many. Times.
    Unreasonable / impossible requirements.

    When a rant is getting obsolete soon

    This will be achievable in a couple of months now.

    Don't forget to tell the hiring manager that you have that many years (because you work more than 8 hrs a day... only count 8 hrs for a day and the years add up)

    and don't forget to tell the hiring manager that you make 30% more now than you do but you would be open for only a small increase in pay because you don't find your current employment challenging enough.

    entry level developer needed:
    Must have 4+ years of experience.
  • 0
    That would actually work now, assuming someone learned Swift just as it came out and has kept using it since.

    I made 2014 with my ++

    Technically, Swift has now existed for 5 *and a half* years. But I digress.

    Now it's disqualified for a joke post.

    @mclark1129 " don't want to be a part of a company where the people building the team don't have a decent understanding of the technologies"

    I would discourage from judging companies by their recruiters.

    Quite often you'll find decent companies outsourcing recruting. Sometimes the recruiters just do some very low level pre-scanning and the "people building the team" are way more knowledgeable.

    I get it. It sounds like a shit company if they can't even spend 5 minutes getting their job ads correct. But sometimes it happens that everyone is busy and the recruiters write shit on their own just cause they wanna get an ad out before christmas.

    Just swap Swift with the latest Javascript snake oil. React? Vue?

    That is my favourite. You also should know how to make a backflip, make a latte and sing Christmas songs at the same time
