When I was a junior, one of my seniors told me "Don't work too fast and don't be too good. You'll have a hard time catching up with yourself in the long run." Of course, the naive and super passionate edge lord that is me thought it was a ridiculous advice. You want me to perform less on purpose? You're crazy.

So I hired a Gen Z with zero experience and he performed better than any of our experienced developers. I'm such an open-minded, amazing, and pure-hearted recruiter. That dumb kid would have starved to death if it wasn't for me and the company would have succumbed to bankruptcy if I didn't have such good judgment.

Bow down to me, bitches. I'm the LinkedIn Queen, Recruiter Extreme.

    I don't get it either. You went from "naive junior" to "recruiter taking in a Gen Z" but the naivety doesn't seem to be explained?

    Which was the part when you learned that not working at 100% is actually the sane thing to do?

    @Hazarth I was in the middle of telling an actual story (first paragraph) and caught myself acting like an inspirational wisdom-packed leader like those LinkedIn virtue signalling bullshit so I just let it happen and completely derailed to the stuff I see on that site (second paragraph).
