That almost always more important than actual experience unless your looking for a specialist in some field.
Programming changes so fast that good problem solving skills and a will to constantly learn new things is a necessity for any long term placement.
We have even employed some that barely cold program at all just because we saw a potential and some if them far outperformed university graduates.
Congrats to 1000++
Voxera68502y@Electrux Not really, experience still counts, especially combined with the right attitude.
Also, if you have a lot of experience it will count much, but there are very few with a lot of experience that are also looking for a job :/. The mostly already have one ;)
But for short placements or consultant firms experience is more important since you often move around with clear goals to achieve. So they are more concerned with immediate placement and are used to employees moving on so the right experience right now is key.
But at the same time long experience together with a bad attitude is almost never with the extra trouble you invite.
