HR: you didn’t write in your job experience that you know kubernetes and we need people who know it.

Me: I wrote k8s

HR: What’s that ?

Do you know docker ?

What if we cut your hands and tell you to open the doors, how would you do that ?
What are your salary expectations?

How many years of experience you have in yz ??? (you need to guess how many we want cause we look for a fortune teller )

Not much changed in job hunting, taking my time to prepare to leetcode questions about graphs to get a job in which they will tell me to move button 1px to the left.

Need to make up some stories about how I was bad person at work and my boss was angry and told me to be better so I become better and we lived happy ever after. How I argued with coworkers but now I’m not arguing cause I can explain. How bad I was before and how good I am now. Cause you need to be a better person if you want to work in our happy creepy company.

Because you know… the tree of DOOM… The DOMs day.

    What did you used and are comfortable in using regarding CSS?

    I used and applied good practices with:
    - vanilla CSS, also used variables, with flex and grid of course
    - SASS, LESS, Stylus, PostCSS with plugins, css-in-js, jss, styled components, classnames aka cx
    - bootstrap, foundation, bulma, MUI, TailwindCSS

    Yeah, its all great, but we are looking for someone who used CSS modules.

    This is actual convo from the interview.

    Now I just say that I used it all and ask what they are using and I say random number of years of experience. Its the same shit if you know basic CSS anyway.
