Jobs in here and there

I have been involved with international job search websites for a while and I have noticed an interesting issue that I think is better to be said than left unsaid. In most foreign job offers, after announcing the desired field, they state why it is better to choose them and send them their resume. Unlike domestic offers, they do not say that you should have certain conditions to be the best candidate. Their assumption is that the right to choose is with the job seeker, not the company looking for employees.

In addition to that, there is a strong bias towards specialization. The job field is “jQuery expert.” Please note that it is not a JS expert, just jQuery. This means that your job is just and only to use jQuery. In comparison, a front-end developer’s skill set required by the company includes more than 20 different skills. This is not an exaggeration.
