RE: Things are not what they seem - was RE: [xml-dev] Urgently n eeda reality check on the job market for XML development

Eventually you will hit a job in which
the content expertise is more difficult than the programming 
expertise.  Expect a learning curve that can hit as long as 
18 months.  So given that kind of job record and knowing 
we would only get six months of work out of you, about 
long enough for you to start something and then get 
ready to abandon it to the next guy, we wouldn't hire you. 
A guy that can stay on the job for long enough to do it 
is preferred.

Most IT savvy companies that hire, actually understand
that people with various projects usually have more experience, variaty of
work, etc..., than someone who has been on the same project, using the same
technology for the past 10 years.  I personally would not stay at a job for
more than 2 years, though this economy has me rethinking my stategy short
term, until it picks back up again.
