Always someone better than you?by Ace128 (Hermit)

I'm in the middle of looking for a job now after my Computer Science study (which is almost done). Since I just love Perl, Open Source, Technology in general, and all that comes with it, I find jobs.perl.org really cool and interesting place... :) However, visiting this perlmonks.org site, it seems like there is always someone brighter, smarter and more knowledgeable than you (me) - so, impossible to get a job. Now, honestly, I just email replies "for fun" - not really expecting I get it. Don't get me wrong, I'm interested, it's just that I have no expectations. Better that way I guess. No depression... :) Although, it would be nice if I got a reply at all... Anyway, I bet more feel the same way here and I just wanted to see what you guys here think about it all...
For me, a telecommuting job would be cool to try out (although, I already have, but not over a different country). I was planing of traveling later, so if I for instance got a job in US, it would be cool to go there and meet the folks there as well... I have never been there so... My god, having so much fun as a student with exchange students, it almost feel boring staying in the same country and have a "regular" jobb...
Ohwell, a regular job is all fine. It's not exactly final, and works well for a while... better than nothing I guess...
So, how many XP do one need here anyway to get a reply from jobs.perl.org? ;)
One may also wonder who exactly is the BRIGHTEST here... ;) I know alot of people here are pretty clever (come on, we all do Perl here, and you gotta be pretty smart just by knowing that :) ).
