recruiter:
I see you worked for 5 years at xyz and you used c# but your CV says you used other technologies like sql and you did testing.. So how much of your time was spent writing c#?

me:
Most of the time.. Maybe 60%.

recruiter:
Ok, let me work that out... ok I will put down that you have 3 years c# experience.

    He is actually correct, people tend to exaggerate on their experience and it's easier to recruit when the candidate is honest about it

    and sleep time, and food time, and travel time. calculate about 3 hours of pure coding time per day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year (holidays and stuff), for 5 years, at 60%. ~3.1 months of experience in c# total.

    So you are a recruiter? How much time do you spend interviewing candidates instead of harassing random developers by mail or phone? Oh only about 40percent? Well well well..
