SQL is table stakes. Highlight the outcomes that SQL enables you to get. What kind of insights do you provide that no one else can? SQL is a tool, not the objective

Just say advanced sql on your resume, it’s not a big differentiator so wouldn’t worry about it

Sql is tablestakes but I recommend doing all sql leetcode problems and the problems over at pgexcercises.com and as amazon1 mentioned, understand how you use Sql to drive business outcomes.

Yea you need to have some SQL built into your PAR statements. You can also build some queries and archive them in your GitHub.

Hi guys, I had an interview for an SDE 2 in the Bay Area. The recruiter came back saying they can only offer an SDE 1 position, and currently the team I interviewed for does not have any open positions at that level. The recruiter mentioned that they have sent out my application to multiple hiring managers and as soon as they hear back they will let me know. Has anyone else ever dealt with getting downgraded for a position and then hung out to dry?
