  1. OK, but have you done any work held a job with P&L responsibility?? Such as be an SRO-Plant Engineer.Construction? Worked in NPP maintenance operations.
    Refuled a reactor?
    Sold something?
    It’s easy to take theoretical positions when you’ve never do a lick of work.
    My next job will be – being an expert on experts…
