Yeap. The successful companies need a really tight filter to make sure they get the best engineers while also maintaining their culture.
If it's any consolation, they're not working to get the best candidates, they're working to make sure they don't let the bad ones in. So you might just have been a false negative, happens, try again after a while
@Froot at the same time, this very industry complains about dev shortage - that they're causing themselves with a process that has a high rate of false negatives.
Also, they usually don't even LOOK at private portfolio projects even if they are job relevant. Because that would take too much effort, somehow. But there's no time shortage for a baroque style employment process.
byshiny308d@Froot Thanks for the encouraging words. I'll keep at it. The reason I got triggered today was because it was a company I really liked. Despite spending a ton of time with them, the best they could do was copy pasta a rejection letter. I mean, give me something better than that. Something that I can work with. At least some companies like Google call you up and mention something you could have done better. Whatever. Their loss.
