I've said this before, but i always get the spot I'm hoping for. there was one time i got rejected though.
i met a colleague during the interview process, and really thought he was getting that spot, he was much more qualified than the other participants. there was about another 4, out of which 3 still looked like good competition. the 4th one got there late, couldn't form a coherent sentence to save his life and had no job experience.

guess who they picked :v

    @Demolishun honestly can't even say "i wish", because I don't. they made the mistake of letting the og dev write the app in Vue and 2 months later he quit. they couldn't find anyone who used Vue at the time, had to start everything from scratch šŸ¤”

    So what made them choose him?

    @cho-uc no clue honestly. i often wonder if they didn't hire my friend because of his accent tho (he's from a region that suffers from a lot of prejudice). maybe they just wanted a doormat employee, he looked really easy to step on šŸ¤·

    The best answer I've come up with so far to that question is, they probably already knew someone in the company who could pull strings for them.

    Also, 99% of the people in the company was of a particular group, and I wasn't..

    So, that might be another reason.

    I know it wasn't my shoes, since I asked if those was acceptable. ( They had a dress policy.. )

    A dress policy for SWE?! šŸ˜­

    What's this dress policy?

    Oh you had to wear all bespoke tailor made clothing, nothing off the shelf.

    My ex worked there and we used to carefully remove all the labels from her off the shelf clothing/shoes.

    The company said they did it to inspire professionalism..
