I am aware that React is the resident darling of web industry but boy is it frustrating applying for roles where you tick all the boxes save for "2 years experience with React" or a similar stipulation. I still apply for these roles, of course, but when the interviews go well I end up getting passed over for someone who does have extensive React experience.
At this point I feel it's too late for me to try and gain that experience because I'll still be lacking, compared to my peers.
I wonder, is anyone else here in the same situation? My experience with SPA frameworks is Mithril and Svelte but no one's asking for that quite yet.
