Much of What Kids Need to Know to Get Hired Today Is Not Taught in School

People in school, and parents with kids in college. Take note. This is my day in high tech hiring:
“This candidate for an entry level engineering position is not a contributor to any open source software projects.”

“This candidate for an entry-level marketing job doesn’t know the APIs of online services like StackExchange, Reddit, and Github”

This is the standard to get hired today. They don’t teach this stuff in school. The good news is that you don’t need to be in school to learn this stuff.
