Some employers demand "hands-on mentality", it is often used in job descriptions. Can someone explain what exactly this phrase means?

    It means they don't want you sitting there and thinking about a problem; they want you to be actively doing something to solve the problem. Mar 11, 2015 at 13:27

Hands-on mentality - The employers are looking for "practical experience" or "active participation" in the desired field.

  • “hands-on operations”
  • "hands-on manager"

I have often heard the phrase, "Do something even if it's wrong." Meaning, try even if you fail.

They are not looking for a philosopher.
