Why the fuck do all these good fucking companies need that proven fucking 3 years of work fucking experience to join? You gotta fucking start somewhere

    @seeba i feel ya there. Basically you got two options, provided you can back it up with skill:

    1: be honest, admit you're new and demonstrate your skills
    2: fake your experience on your resumé and lie to them in a groteske way until you get in.

    In my experience, the lie gets you further then the truth...

    Can't lying about your experience screw you pretty hard in the future?

    Pad up your resume with side projects, fork some GitHub repos and make useful changes, market yourself on your resume and overstate how long you've been using each language etc.

    To all the experienced devs, should I work as an intern in a rather good company with no guarantee of becoming a perm, or should I get in for now and make bigger jumps later?

    TIA
