Your friend and mine,

Unfortunately, there are too many people in the world who have worked very
hard to obtain the skills they possess, only to have others with the "Grand
Scroll" come and snatch a position from under them. I like you Matt, am
one of these people. Yes, it is frustrating.

I think that eventually though, if we want to continue to be recognized for
the craftsmen (people) we really are, we will have to display certification
of some kind.

I for one am investigating the on-line educational aspect. I don't think
certification in general is the answer, but to continue in the business
world competitively I will need to display the degree. I wish that
employers would recognize the many hours we have spent educating ourselves
in the positions we have held, and seminars attended. Unfortunately unless
a brick wall hits "them" (corporate america), I don't see that happening.

Just my .02 cents.

Julie
