  1. Sounds good to me! But this is clearly not the expectation today. They want 5+ years experience and intermediate to expert skills in everything "Web" but still call it "Junior". I think the problem is all the non-technical hiring managers who havent the slightest clue as to what a relational database is are the ones writing the job ads
