Sorry, I didn't see your thread earlier.

Most IT services firms aren't that interested in someone with advanced degrees in the field, we're looking for someone with either experience using the technologies we have, or someone new with an analytically-oriented degree of some sort.

That said, there's a smaller number of firms that are in the business of building development tools, databases, etc. and that is where someone with an advanced degree should probably be focusing. Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, etc.

Although we do IT services we're really more about ERP implementations (Peoplesoft, Oracle, etc.) which is a different ballgame.

Thanks for the reply! It really does help. I've told the hubby that no one really cares about advanced degrees anymore, especially in a world where kids know more about computers than most adults. But on top of the degrees he has so much IT experience, mainly in healthcare but also in education. He's very well-rounded and was a "jack of all trades" while at the hospital. The downside is he didn't do IT Business. He wants to do project management or something similar. He just can't even get interviews. Ironically, he did get an interview with Microsoft but had a "dud" (inexperienced) interviewer thus didn't make it to the final selection. His other interview was at LSU (imagine my excitement) but he was 2nd choice...I think b/c he was over qualified for the position and there was a fear of him not staying long term.

Regardless, thanks for the feedback!

Letters are so old fashioned I don't think they are even relevant anymore. I don't remember the last time I checked my mailbox at work. I'd send an email.

Just going by what my dad told me he appreciates.. being as he is the ceo of his company I listen.

Maybe that works for a small business where even the CEO does one of the interviews and the whole process is conducted on a more personal level. In any decent sized company nobody has the time to read paper mails anymore. It is just an outdated form of communication.

just send an e-mail. Hand written letters get thrown in the trash.


Last time I went job hunting, I sent cards in the mail. Both places scheduled second interviews. The first one gave me a job...when I called the second place to cancel, they offered me part time.

The last couple interviews I got offers from, I masturbated right after. Therefore, masturbating after interviews gets you the job.

Obviously I'm kidding (or am I), but my point is you getting a second interview or an offer more than likely had more to do with the actual interview and your experience versus a letter you happened to mail.

I am all for sending and email for the follow up and if so inclined you can do a more formal handwritten one after.


A lot of the interviewers today have grown to rely on and accept email as an appropriate method of communication.

I wouldn't go that far, it's just that most IT jobs don't require it for this kind of work.

OTOH, someone who can write fairly basic code but combines general accounting knowledge with a leading vendor's database structure can do very well. Something similar probably applies in other areas. The idea is that programming itself isn't the focus, but being able to apply that skill to in-depth functional knowledge in another field can be very lucrative.

Your luck helped. I just got a call with an offer. Exactly what I asked for salary-wise. Just waiting on more information regarding the benefits to make a good comparison. Although the benefits would really have to be paltry to not make it worthwhile. It's a nice bump from where I am salary-wise. It's back in Louisiana, closer to family and closer to things I enjoy. My mind is basically made up, but I just want to be sure.

Congrats! Maybe I did bring you luck b/c I watched all 3 LSU baseball games this weekend and we kicked ass!

Damn...wish I could my own husband some of that good luck.

This is why I like this board...everyone willing to help each other. Thanks!
