I had a friend who graduated from USC with an MBA in Judicial Administration,
but no experience in any area that made him welcome in the high-tech companies
here in Silicon Valley. He became bitter because he felt he had "the
credentials" to go directly into middle management, but no company called him
back after the initial interview. I tried several times to give him tough-love
advice about tuning his skills - but he didn't want to hear it.
