12. I know a bit of what you feel.
I've been in my field for 17 years. I have a BA and some graduate courses under my belt, and have trained many a Masters level person how to do this job. Yet, because they have a Masters degree, even without a lot of experience they can get a higher level of work than I can.

I think education is very important, but damnit, so is experience! I can run circles around n00b's who just got out of grad school. But unfortunately, with the way the state Labor & Industries department changed things, my experience has been rendered irrelevant in their eyes. Oh well, I know I have the experience, regardless of what they think.
