So, I'm on LinkedIn, and it has a job-suggestion system that's currently in beta testing right now.
Only thing is, every time I view its list of suggestions, the majority of positions are for senior-level postings.

I'd commented on my Facebook account, wondering why, especially with my distinct lack of industry experience.

One of my classmates had this to say:

"Why demerit yourself? Perhaps you are qualified for these senior-level job.... Or quite possibly overqualified for these jobs."

I responded by saying that I'd rather work my way up from a lower position, proving myself worthy of it, rather than starting at a higher level and finding myself unsuited to it.

My question for you guys here is this: Is this a form of pride?
Should I be thinking this way?

Proverbs 25:6,7 says that you should not exalt yourself of the king (or, in fact, anyone in a position of power), and it is better for you to be promoted than demoted.

Anybody have any comments on this?
