We’ve posted about this subject before…but why not do it again!!

Most recruiters and hiring managers know there is a disconnect when it comes to communicating job role qualifications. But do those two groups actually know how wide the separation really is?

– Proficiency in Ruby on Rails
– Ability to write clean ruby code
– Good understanding of front-end technologies like Javascript
– Bachelor’s degree in computer science, computer engineering, OR RELATED FIELD (this last part is always hilarious)
