I saw an ad on another e-mail list, posted by a tech writing company
that's looking to expand. They listed the usual technical skills
(databases, networks) and corporate buzzwords ("team player, determined
to succeed"), but also... "Outstanding interviewing skills, persistence,
and adaptability."

Being *politely* persistent makes a huge difference in this line of
work. Kudos to that company for realizing it!
