Funnily, I remember reading this article when it was first published! 😛 Its truth is still spot on today, as it was then. Nothing has changed in the world of recruiters, or companies that don't understand what they're asking for.
I'm surprised they didn't correct the "then" issue on this new publish, especially after the drawn out discussion about it. It is irrelevant to the discussion, but I have no control when my brain grinds to a halt, mid sentence, for a tiny recompute. Don't worry, it doesn't bother me, I'm no grammar or spelling expert, and I should care less about such things. That said, my reading flow gets interrupted, like a cat walking over your keyboard while you're trying to read something. 😀
