And the answer at that point is any tech company.

Most of our folks are customer facing and =have= to have a personality to get past our interview process.

I've recommended not extending offers to prospects because of personality dissonance despite having the technical chops.

I can haz ISKies?

I generally make about 50mil a day, mostly through PI. If I actually tried, I could make a ton more. Heh. People who complain about making ISK in EVE are clueless - you don't have to live in Null or grind missions to make that kind of dough, either.

I also work in the US, and I've never started a position where I had less than 2 weeks of ETO or vacation.
The one place that I had offer me 1 week of ETO got a nicely worded "hell no", even though the offer was for 15k more than I was making at the time.

If more people started quitting jobs that don't give acceptable amounts of ETO, as well as refusing to work for those places in the first place, the more likely they will be to increase that benefit.

Yeah, I know - easier said than done, especially in this economy.

I disagree. You can become absolutely competent and capable relatively quickly in EvE.

The main issue then becomes one of time to earn money - which the older, established players do have an edge over newbies on.

*shrug* I'd like more opportunity to play in nullsec, but I'm not going to be too irritated about it yet - I've only been playing for 6 months, and I'm only now skilled up enough to solo mine low-sec without the NPC 'rats getting me. PC pirates, otoh... fuckers.
