Hi Folks,

Sorry about the strange post to the end of the last digest. I have resolved
the mail sending problem, but my second serious post to the list went
bye-bye. I hope it doesn't show up and make a duplicate of this. 8-\

Here is my question. In the months that I have belonged to this list I have
seen both pro and con about employers looking for specific software
expertise. I have also seen the Ford vs. Chevy debate concerning which
software is best; Pagemaker or Framemaker. It seems that many of the job
postings ask for Framemaker experience or UNIX experience. If the other
qualifications were present; writing skill, technical background, software
proficiency, education, etc., but not any training in either of the above
mentioned would you disqualify a job candidate? Which, if any, formal
training would you put on top of your list of "door openers"?

Thanks much!
