When I first moved to California in 1997 and was trying to get a job,
many of the jobs I was going for were NT admin jobs. (NT was the case
study in my OS architecture class, and I did admin/security work on NT
3.51 and NT4 both at my college and the ISP I worked at in Illinois.) A
lot of the prereqs for these NT backup monkey jobs were "5+ years" and
"10+ years" of NT experience. I was so incredibly frustrated, mainly
because at that time, NT had barely been around for 5 years, and
certainly not for 10. I should write a blog entry about some of those
I usually look for multiple previous projects somehow associated with
the job I'm hiring for -- I try to avoid minimum experience measured in
time for this reason when I hire people.
