See, I don't get that at all... You get taken more
seriously just because you have a different title or
role? I *really* must have lucked out in the 6
full-time jobs I've held and in the 30+ contracts I've
landed. I have never had to justify my existence or
felt I wasn't taken seriously. Are people still that
liberal with their money to hire people they don't
take seriously???

Sad, yes. True? Not where I'm standing. My mileage
does vary. (Maybe it's the frequent tune-ups...)
