That probably describes the career progression of 99% of the people on this
list. If you manage to become an admin by design rather than by accident/getting
press-ganged, you are doing really well.

IMHO, that would put you in the top 5% of applicants. Finding people who know
something about systems administration *and* something about scientific / HPC
applications is really hard; to be a good cluster admin, you need to know
something about both.
