no matter how many technologies you are familiar/proficient with there will always be a longer list of technologies for which you have little to no familiarity or proficiency.

it is this second list whose members will jump out at you most when looking through job descriptions.

don't let the second list intimidate you. every skill in the list of things you count as your skillset was once listed on the second list, too.


@djsundog Great insight and advice!
I also like to look at these folks from the perspective of: "Cool! I was curious about X and maybe I can learn about X from them."
And it applies the other way for your own experiences, too, just like it goes both ways in your toot.
