=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ Well and internal promotion only. William Roush william.roush@roushtech.net http://www.roushtech.net/blog/

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Apply anyway with your best possible efforts. Job descriptions and "requirements" are like Christmas Wish-Lists... They don't always get what they ask for. For everything that you don't meet their exact requirement in, you may have other things they will be impressed with when they meet you. Geeks tend to see "requirements" as hard set rules, human resources and management people see them as filters and goals to attain, and are often much less rigid about them. More than one job description has asked for more experience with a thing, than the original creator of that thing could claim. More than one person hired has met few of the requirements, but had the attitude personality and aptitude others lacked.
