Can you expand? What are the merits, in your eyes?

Yeah! So I wanted to leave this kinda open ended to see if people value technical skills over soft skills when working within a position. Maybe they wished that there soft skills were stronger or that they had more coding knowledge in a particular topic. 😀

The primary screening round of all companies involve a test where we are aupposed to solve a coding question within a stipulated time. So all the tech atuff that we know wont even be asked if we fail to pass the screening round That is why I said to practice competitive as much as possible because I myself am getting rejected because I didnt practice cc as much as I should have. This is however a personal opinion.

Gotcha, thanks for expanding. I guess the "competitive" part threw me, it makes it sound like it's programming against someone else.
