No, I'd feel lucky to get the job!
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/10 - 1:46:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if I failed to do the work...
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/10 - 1:57:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not if I'm qualified to do it. The experience will come with the job.

You have to gain experience somehow.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/10 - 4:48:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I'm qualified, no.

...but what high paying job is there that experience isn't considered a qualification?

"high paying" is relative...

Yes. One time, many years ago, I was hired as a manager of a research lab and I quit the next day because I felt like a complete fraud.
I might be able to handle it now, but back then, I felt like a child given way too much responsibility and it freaked me out.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/10 - 8:03:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. That would be how I'm getting my experience.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 5/26/10 - 2:29:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
If Im qualified for the job, why would that make me feel like a fraud?

Maybe if my lack of experience caused me to be horrible at whatever job it was, but then, if I was horrible at the job, I wouldnt be qualified for it in the first place...

I've never been in that situation, but I can't see why it would be fraudulent in any way.

When I got my first job as a programmer, I had lots of experience* but no formal qualifications. I still made $16 000 a month, and not even that made me feel I was "fake" in any way: I delivered the wares, and they were willing to pay. Everybody were happy

*from sitting at home, cooking up games & other weird programs on my Amiga...

How can you be qualified for a job without having the required qualifications?

Do you mean like I have a Masters in Mathematics and have little teaching experience, so I might feel like a fraud for accepting a position as a teacher?

If I was getting highly paid, I wouldn't care.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 5/29/10 - 6:01:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmm no
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 5/29/10 - 7:59:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I'd feel loaded. If I had lied on my CV and said I had experience that I didn't, it would be different.
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 5/29/10 - 5:16:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
no i would take the money and leave
10 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 5/30/10 - 8:50:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, everyone starts somewhere. It's just stupidity on the behalf of the employee to pay more than I'm worth.
10 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 7/15/10 - 8:26:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all, not if I am good at it.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 8/14/10 - 9:16:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Noooooooooooooooooooooo.
9 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 3/16/11 - 11:15:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I'm qualified, no.
7 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 5/31/13 - 11:54:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes I feel like a fraud in every day life. Like, how does the government let me drive a two ton weapon down the road at high speeds? Seriously? Am I really qualified to do this?
7 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 6/1/13 - 2:25:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
maybe if i didn't do my job correctly, but if they're willing to pay that high, i don't see who wouldn't take it.
