Why does it serm everyone have low yoe?

Sep 12, 2018 8 Comments

I was looking at LinkedIn recruiters on linkedin and it seemed like 90% were hired this year.

A while back I interviewed at AQR and the interviewers had been there a year or less. One guy was a fresh out, only there a few months and he asked me a DP question. I honestly didn't know DP was a thing at the time.

I've had other interviews where the interviewers seemed new too, but I didn't ask their yoe.
I'm not against it, but I don't see how it's a good thing for the company. I have 15 yoe and I just recently started feeling qualified to interview others.

Obviously it works because these companies are doing well. I just want to understand how it works so well. Or is it because I'm on this app now, which seems like mostly new hires, that I'm starting to see low yoe people everywhere.

    The software industry is great in that it at least tries to be a meritocracy. YOE doesn't matter as much as actual skill, which is great. Why can't an engineer learn the skills to interview in a year or two?

    YOE: about 10 years

      For me, interviewing is all about figuring out if the candidate has the skills, experience and cultural fit for the role. You can't be a good judge of that with little experience. You need to be exposed to a lot of projects and a lot of developers.
