    What do these skills actually mean to a company? Most places are full of shit & look to resume harvest or find a reason NOT hire someone. Most of the skills needed I’ve either had from my education & the job I’ve held down for over a decade. Btw, I’m not trolling. I’m burnt out from this job market & will be forced to settle being stuck part time at UPS. BITE ME!

    This doesn’t seem well researched. Seriously, I know so many software engineers who were both out of work for nearly a year. One had to move to the Midwest after searching the entire West Coast and he was multilingual. Every other person on the West Coast has a marketing degree and none of them can find work that pays more than $10 a hour.
