Discussion on: You're not worth hiring unless...

I took a React,Cypress, GraphQL interview from a stackoverflow listing despite having not used any of the tech in their stack (except NodeJs & SQL)

Got to the final stage. Finished the first task in the final project while learning all these technologies during that period. Later got informed that while I was a good candidate, they felt that I couldn't solve the second problem as easily (which required more advanced concepts in a foreign stack to me) & that for that reason they can't hire me. The worst part is that they mentioned knowing their stack isn't necessary for the interview

Now I'm CTO at my own company
