Me thinking that getting a job in tech is easier than getting a non-tech job because we are "in demand".

    Guess that depends on where you are located then, I practically had companies scrambling to sign me and continually get contacted and I barely have experience and no education.

    How Sharp's your CV? Are you displaying your skills well and emphasizing your personal skills too?

    Being in demand normally means the requirements are higher than that for "common" jobs.

    If the job was easier the supply-demand ratio wouldn't be so obscene.

    @ArcaneEye my Linkedin profile picture is Microsoft Clippy and I still get bombarded with recruiters.

    No formal education past 18, university dropout, almost 10 years industry time now thought.

    Ten years? Fuck I'm getting old.

    Exactly, that's why I question the grounds for the meme - if you have just something resembling qualifications, you're pretty much hired. Sure, supermarket jobs might be easier, except where I live there's a truckload of people applying to more low-educational jobs compared to programming jobs so in a sense, given you are on devRant, getting a job in tech can probably be easier.
