Because if you read between the lines, the Associate == about $15/hr, consultants as you know cost more but do less. :)

Might not be "AND" but "OR" relation between elmts :P

We don't ask people to know everything (I'm working at Cigital), but just to be willing to learn, to be motivated and to have a CS culture (important to understand the softwares/webapps to analyze as well as their business context)!

@tx: the experience section should be a bit separate I believe...
