Re: Speaking of specific job requirements...
I just received the following job listing (for Vancouver, Canada), and
was struck by the requirements. Now, generally I'll apply for a job if I
only have some or most of the skill set. However, the way they've
phrased it here ("only applicants with the following") would discourage
me from doing so. That's if I was currently looking for a job anyway.
They're really draining the potential applicant pool when they're
looking for someone with AutoCAD, a university degree and Doc-To-Help.
That combination has got to be pretty obscure. Additionally, most
writers I know with more than 5 years experience prefer to call
themselves "Senior". Thanks. DB.
