Like one of those jobs that demand 12 years of experience with Kubernetes (which was released 6 years ago)

    What else is new ?

    I love this kind of offers, usually I take around 15 minutes to write a response along lines

    "hello, I have X years experience with this Y thingy. But as I'm the only one in the world having this kind of experience, I would require a scientifically higher salary, at least for the first (Years they asked minus years techno exists) years”

    Years of experience is not a direct correlation to skill, but it's the only real correlation you can draw.

    If we gave tests, people would complain that tests are ineffective measures of skill.

    Also how does this guy have the patience to find emojis for each of his sentences? Maybe he was ancient Egyptian in a past life?

    @AlgoRythm I worked in an industry that loved certification tests as benchmarks, it was terrible.

    I'll take the vagaries of years of experience over the complete moron but has a certification world any day.

    I'm reminded of a job I applied for where I had 35+ years experience, but they gave it to someone else with no experience at all..

    Well, they did know someone who worked at the company !

    That was a waste of a 2 days and 2 interviews..

    Next interview I might say:

    "Are you just going to give the job to someone the boss/manager knows, or is this a real interview..?"

    Actually, I should just email that instead..
