>learn a song from Youtube

This is one of the better functions of Youtube. Learning a chord progression by repeatedly playing a CD or looping part of a music file isn't as easy as actually /watching/ it.

Some artists deliberately put videos out there for people to learn to play, like Dr. John.

Another value of Youtube, musically, is that there is a ton of historically significant music on it. Betty Boop cartoons with Cab Calloway music, anybody?

fluency in [ mandarin | Chinese ] is a plus

Of course it's a plus. I'm likely to be hiring a group of Mechanical Engineers in the next six months, and I certainly want at least one of them to be fluent in Mandarin to make it easier to work with Chinese suppliers. It would be pretty handy if they speak Korean, Japanese or Hindi, too.

After they mismanaged the company for a few years, trashing our corporate culture and making all the employees miserable I found another job and resigned.

If you were an ethical person, you would have bailed as soon as the acquisition was announced.

miserable, judgemental jerk

Why would I be miserable? I don't have the taint of working for a criminal organization on my conscience.
