Comment Required & Beneficial (Score 2) 292

Required should be no more than a handful of things unless you are willing to pay a kings ransom' Beneficial/Favorable can be a mile long. Also in tech the education requirement needs to ALWAYS have 'Or Equivalent' experience. Otherwise you will interview the the Doctorate who hasn't touched a computer in 10 years and ignoring the self taught whiz right out of the box. A handful of employers have skipped over me because I lack a degree as if a degree in technologies from 25 years ago would be beneficial in some way?

Comment I don't think they CAN be undervalued in Web Dev (Score 1) 323

The skills are so different they don't benefit from each other. Front End Devs need UI and ascetics as well as general programming skills. Back end Devs need business logic, database, and general programming skills. Knowledge of the elemental composition of plastics, or knowledge of resistor band codes won't come in handy in either.
