Interviewer: "Hi, we are searching for a junior frontend dev with 1 year of experience and strong skills with Angular".
Me: "I have never used Angular before but I have 4 years of experience, It's not a problem for me to study it and use it quickly".
Interviewer: "Eh no, we are searching for someone with very strong Angular skills".
Me: "That's fine, but sorry how can a junior dev with just 1 year of experience have already strong skills with Angular? He must have also strong skills with JavaScript in general and It's quite impossible".
Interviewer: "Ehh... ehm.... ehmm..."

    Guys, you can have strong skills before having a job. If you work on stuff in your own time. Doesn't have to be in a job. And, companies can hire someone with years of experience for a junior position... It's just them saying that they will pay the lowest possible salary to the most experienced developer that would accept the job.

    I'm going to play the devils advocate here, I'm looking for someone with Angular experience right now. I don't have time to wait for someone to learn the nuances of Angular 2, it has a steep learning curve and most of the questions on Stack Overflow are about Angular 1.x so unless you have been working with or experimenting with Angular 2 and Typescript since December, you're probably not going to be able to keep pace.

    @port22 The question now would be - Are you willing to pay for this experience or you want to pay for a junior developer? :)

    It's like I need somebody with 2 years angular 2 experience:
    Me: angular 2 came out 6 months ago.

    I'm sorry but this is what we need :)

    If you want strong skills in some tech, you need a senior not a junior 😄
