Yeah i applied for a job once without much js experience. I got invited for an interview and a couple of tests. The interview went well. I think the cognitive test wasn’t bad either.

However they wanted to see funky js shit i hadn’t ever done or see before and also was totally useless skill wise.

I asked if i could google answers (who doesn’t in their daily script job?) but i wasn’t.

I tried for like 5 or 10 minutes and then blurted out to the major CTO super tech savy master degree microsoft-o-worthy, that my js skills weren’t up for the task.

He gave me a couple of links to pdf’s with programming basics teached at a high school. Totally cool and understanding.

I walked away ashamed and probably red as a tomato. Excused myself for wasting his time and left as quickly as possible.

    Was it meant to insult you? or did he hand it to you to help maybe quickly gather what you need? since from experience I would know both interviewer types exist.

    @jeeper js is one of my most disliked languages but I always ended up filling that position. I'm the "fine I'll do it" guy when roles get assigned and nobody else wants it.

    As a result js is my most fluent language and I'm now also "the js guy". Send help.

    @jeeper isn't that everyone working in js pretty much?
