I skipped it by just being the right guy in the right place. I was taking some job search classes at Goodwill and met a lady that knew someone in need of my skills. Next thing I know I've got a job at a small company, being brought up to the level of their only IT guy. Now less than 2 years later I'm the DBA.
It takes more than qualifications, jobs are highly political, especially when you move up within a company.
