Here’s a thought: Can you outlast the employers in your job search?
In other words, how long will it be before employers start to loosen up the years of experience “required” for the position?
And if that happens, are you still standing, sustaining your end of the deal?
I think some employers (not all) may have to start making some decisions soon if they’re challenged with this scenario:
– Those with 2-3 years experience are not applying
– Consulting firms are too expensive to keep on board
– Contractors won’t work as we’re trying to build an internal team for the long haul
– We don’t have anyone in house who has the time to cross train
If you sit down now, you won’t know what happens.
