Jeff...not to jump on you, but after the first month of being turned
down becuase you didn't know FM, why didn't you simply learn it? Buy
a copy, get the Classroom in a Book, spend a weekend and go through
the lessons. Now, you have FM on your resume.

I only ask this because I did something similar to this. I
interviewed on Friday, they asked about it...I said I knew it (I shoot me), I went home and ordered it for Sat delivery, by
Monday I was at the job and productive.
