in thread Is PerlMonks relevant for one's Perl marketability?

I've never actually applied for a job and have always been on the other side of the table. However my experience leads me to believe that employers generally want someone who can make problems go away. If you can convince them you can do that better than the other candidates they'll hire you. Another observation is that suits are a bit dim and unless the hirer is a programmer they'll generally hire whoever seems cleverest. Only an experienced programmer knows that the cleverest solutions are often not the best solutions but they won't hire you for pointing out the simple and obvious solution they could have thought of themselves. They think that's worthless.
