in thread What 'should' a professional PERL programmer know?

So hypothetically, what would a test be aimed at for a junior Perl programmer
I'd say so. Senior roles involve not only deeper understanding of the tools (i.e. Perl), but also the broader view: understanding of the business, leadership skills, etc. Participating in a project with 100+ developers, automatic builds, issue trackers etc. is quite different to writing super clever solutions to HackerRank problems.

    Another way of saying it might be ... simply to observe that you are coming in more-or-less “from University,” therefore what might correctly be said to be, “entry-level, and how exactly could it be otherwise.”   So, you were asked to take a competency test, which of course you passed.   As you move from job to job and your experience both broadens and deepens, so will the interview processes that you face.   They can check your references, now, because you are beginning to accumulate them.

    And, to further clarify what I’ve said elsewhere:   I have never hired “entry-level” at all.
