Actually, I feel pretty good about not doing that.

Today Career Builder sent me a list of job matches for which they thought I was qualified to apply. I get these lists from a wide range of job sites every day. Sometimes the matches they give me send me straight to the pits, thinking, "I only WISH I were qualified to do that job! But nooooo, I have a B.A. in English!"

Today, one of my matches was "gastroenterologist". And I thought, "Well, you know, I am not at all qualified for that one. But I think that is A-OK by me."

So, hey, all you gastro guys out there, enjoy your job. I am not about to compete with you for it.

I remember getting those and thinking, "Ok, really funny smart guy." I wonder if they know how incredibly off they are sometimes?

I have a BA in English too. I'm qualified to type this comment, but that's about all.

Yeah, Knot, just goes to show it is not "real people sitting at their computers trying to match you with your perfect job like some sort of Career Yentl".

And Rol--What the HELL were we THINKING?

How did it think you were qualified for that? Crazy Internet.
