Letter to the Editor

I just finished reading letter-writer Paul Hudson's suggestion about certification requirements. Does he honestly believe that someone with all those credentials—Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Ph.D. and a few other certifications—would even think about working for the government, even with amended pay scales?

He needs to take a look at the real world of information technology. There are challenges and excellent salaries with great benefits available for someone with those impressive credentials. Even with the economic downturn, there are very good jobs.

I surely wouldn't waste my time even looking at what was offered by the government. They are so far off track, it's amazing they get anything done.
