If I was an employer looking for a developer, how do you assess who has real experience vs those who believe that they have the experience?

A college student with zero experience can say that they have SQL server skills, as can a person who worked as a dBA for 20 years.

The CV is the only way to gain assurance that someone has the skills and also to accurately measure how experienced a candiate really is.

What would be helpful would be for recruiters to report on what the most requested skills are, over time. So if over six months the recuiter has seen 50 DBA positions, then provide some numbers on the most requested database skills.
