Agreed with the skills improvement. I have found that the
non-technical skills are more important (especially how you come
across in an interview) and that, technical people including myself,
tend to dismiss communications skills as fluff. I'm sure any one
reading this email has the ability to write code for Google, Amazon,
Oracle, or any other employer. What sets those that get hired and
those who don't is how well you present that knowledge. It's not what
you know, nor who you know, it's how you communicate it.
