I recently applied for a transfer to a geek job at my place of employment. Even though I have 25 years of experience in computers, 20+ programming, 10+ network admin, I was denied an interview because I lacked "A+" certification. So I drove to the real world and perused the books at B&N. It seemed like this was silly. I got a sample test review book and just took the tests. W/o studying I passed all 4 parts. Then I go online to book the "real" test. WTF!!! I'm supposed to drop better than $150 to take a nonsense test that only proves I know my sphincter from a hole in the ground??? My EMT license tests cost less than that. Am I nuts or is this going to be a show stopper whereever I apply? ARS Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
