in reply to Always someone better than you?

You shouldn't set yourself up for failure. Having no expectations?....

Keep plugging away! Even if the job sounds too big for you, apply for it. Many managers ask for everything just to see what they get.

My boss will tell you that attitude is everything! Skills can be taught, you can't teach attitude.

Finally, the xp thing. Well? Grandfather says he got hired because of it. I think it's next to worthless. But, hey if it gets you a job.....

    Umm, actually I mentioned that another monk that I know of had his standing here used as a factor in his appointment when changing jobs a little while ago. The fact that other monks were involved in the appointment process possibly made a difference too.
