Discussion on: The Industry Hates Me For Being Honest

Ordinary companies seek ordinary people.

But then, maybe you should be happy asking yourself: Do I really want to work for a company that handles criticism so badly?

At the end of the day, I have learned one thing: Interviewing, despite everything HR tells you, is a lottery for both sides.

Or company look for google level genius while paying pennies?

Or ordinary company thinks they are FAANG and looks for google level genius?

There are other ways to gauge skill levels.
None of them are ideal for both sides.

This is the game the industry plays right now and I am content to say that I apparently just suck at the game.

I can just keep my hands shut and maybe they won't mind having me? We'll never know I guess?
