I agree with Cheryl Kimble. I chuckle (to myself) when someone in their
twenties hands me his or her business card with the job title of
"senior ____" (fill in the blank with the job description of choice).
Too many people want to put the word "senior" in front of their job
title after just 2 or 3 years in the field. Also, many employers have a
misguided expectation that these young people will be able to produce
the same quality of work with the same level efficiency as a truly more
senior employee. When I was starting work in the field in the early
'80s, if felt like there was more true mentorship. "On the job
training" was real because the senior people were expected (required,
paid) to coach and mentor the younger employees.
