Hmm, I'm not clear what you were trying to say when you put these two
quotes together.  They seem actually opposed to each other.

Despite what I wrote, Thomas is making a more accurate statement.
However, Java EXPERIENCE does look good on my resume - and seems to
carry a lot more weight than python experience.  I don't like that fact
- but let's face it, a lot of HR departments look at things just that
way.
