Man what a jerk HR person.
Those folks waste people's time like it's nothing...
Learning MySQL and sequalize would take an afternoon to learn. At least enough to make it work for a blogging app. It wouldn’t hurt to learn it for next time 🤷🏻♂️
While of course MySQL CAN be used from the MERN stack... that would be like the last choice most MERN people would go with... typically preferring Redis or RDS or Dynamo...
Me thinks that HR department doesn't know what the fuck they're talking about and/or had you write their app in MERN (for free) only to decide they want it in LAMP (also for free).
How many hours you in at this point?
Remember the sunken cost fallacy.
