comment Why are you choosing XYZ? - Is this valid question in interview?
Most companies are, to someone. Awesome is in the eye of the beholder. If none of the companies in the entire world are of any interest to you ... might be the wrong profession. :)

comment Too much to learn, dealing with overwhelming varieties of technologies
It seldom hurts to apply anyway, but relatively few job postings are "artificially heightened", and from long experience being part of that hiring process - those skills are almost always things that are directly looked for. The idea that they are made up - to scare off candidates - isn't super-helpful. :(

comment How to deal with frequent requirements changes?
...then, if it is done in full knowledge that it is changing the requirements, and it is done in full knowledge of the cost of that change, they are paying you to put up with those changes. ;)

comment How to deal with frequent requirements changes?
I am serious: I think that the ad-hoc process is a bigger problem than the poorly thought out. If you have, eg, the business advisor work with you to update a document that lists the decisions, they can't change their mind without seeing that they are revising a previous decision. Adding more time without addressing the underlying problem isn't going to help.
