I'm not at all sure I WANT this position. I think it might be a little farther over my head than I'm ready for, considering the department is small and there are very few people to support the system. Also the firm is the result of a merger which was fairly recent, meaning there is still that standard confused environment which results after a merger.


Is it that you don't think you're ready? Or that you're concerned about having to work too many hours with a small group? Or is this the fear of accepting a new position speaking?

I'm currently a manager of a large UNIX and INTEL operational group (77 employees). I'd rather hire someone who isn't as knowledgeable but seems coachable rather than someone who claims/is an expert, but seems arrogant, unwilling to take coaching, unable/unwilling to admit that they don't know something.

My 2 cents,
