Whats the point in interviewing now? My country still has quarantine untill end of March. Quarantine might be extended and nobody knows how many weeks or months it will take for things to go back to normal. I already did 4-5 interviews with technical tasks and now will have to wait for a response which might take months. After that waiting most likely I will have to do technical interviews once again. Its as if they are trying to give something to do for their internal HR staff just so HR would keep their jobs. What a waste of time.

    I'll start doing this. It might be a good way to practice. Not really sure if the lock down will be lifted or extended in my country.

    @rutee07 I already managed to land a job and I start tomorrow. Talked with 10 companies, out of them 4 accepted to employ me remotely asap and remaining ones were just wasting my time because they want to wait until virus disappears. Out of remaining 4 only one was fast enough with reviewing tech task and giving me an offer, remaining 3 dont give a fuck and takes 2 weeks just to review my PR so fuck them Im not waiting. Also they have insane standards because dozens of devs apply to their companies so they are arrogant fucks. Gotta put my 6 months in asap and then as soon as I get my mortgage Im back to my own projects baby.

    @zemaitis Good for you. Yeah, I hate companies who act like that. They drive away the good developers and keep the ones who are willing to put up with that shit. Sounds like a good plan.

    @rutee07 Its a PR trick. They are claiming that they havent stopped hiring and started hiring even more while in reality onboarding process length increased a lot.
