    husband has had his resume floating around job sites for what seems like an eternity. He's always over qualified or under qualified.

    Well he got a surprise yesterday in his email. A major cereal company contacted him and would like him to apply for the opening they have as plant manager of quality control. husband looked up the position's requirements for the application, because of course he wasn't going to ignore it........and it requires degrees he doesn't have. What he does have is some 40 yrs experience working with quality control equipment in various fields from gasoline to pharmaceuticals. The way the testing is done is different, the equipment is all the same. So husband is surprised they sent the request at all.

    He filled out the application and submitted it. I'm trying to look at the positive that they contacted him, so they must see something in his resume that they like that makes them want him. He thinks perhaps they wanted him to apply for this one because they know one more suited to his resume is about to open up and he'll already have his foot in the door so to speak.

    Either way..........this would mean the world to us.

    So if you could hold good thoughts, send some positive vibes whatever.......all will be appreciated.

    Pretzeling salting and dancing for you! Many companies will accept on the job experience in lieu of the degree needed on a year for year basis (4 years for a BA, 6 years for a Master, etc)
