    it seems to be very dog-eat-dog. It's even worse with the hiring process for those jobs these days.

    Hiring managers want people who already know the software and don't want the company to spend any money on training. And with older, more experienced folks looking for work nowadays, you can bet your ass us younger guys are gonna get the shaft because they can get away with paying those more experienced guys less money.

    I write a series called 'My Life as an Aspie', documenting my experiences before and after my A.S. diagnosis as a way to help fellow Aspies and parents of Aspies and spread awareness. If I help just one person by doing this, then I've served a purpose.
