hmmm... sounds like... "we want 5 yrs of Java experience" for every Java
programming job posted.... yet if nobody ever gives you a shot, you can't
ever get the 5 years of Java programming experience.....

With this mentality, the pool of Java (or other technology) programmers
would never enlarge :-) ...

My favorite one is 6+ years or more of Java programming.... jeez... Java
hasn't been popular for hardly more than that.... what are they looking
for an ex Sun employee who coded Java :-) ?
