    Does the University of Phoenix have a quick online degree in that? Or, as an alternative, go back to school and get ready for the next time there's an opening.

    That's a good point. They described the ideal candidate, who might not exist or who might not want to live there or who might be more into research and conferences than into trudging around talking with normal people.
