must have 8 years admin experience with Windows Server 2012
My favorites are the ones seeking someone to do IT which includes coding in several languages, managing two physical sites' hardware needs, including inventory/ordering/auditing/rollout/etc., managing the company web site and internal stuff, all for a fat $15 an hour.
They will hire someone with none of that and complain later that the job pool is so inexperienced.
In Australia our wages are higher, but I saw a similar position advertised recently. The applicant needs to speak 3 languages, have 10 years customer service experience, and a degree in finance. $18.50 an hour.
If you have all that you can earn $100k plus a year.
They do this intentionally. Many places are required to advertise job openings, even if they have no intention of hiring an applicant. They either have an internal candidate in mind, or are gaming the H1B visas.
Va te faire foutre.
I saw one the other day that required a bachelors and 14 years experience...... For an entry level position.
Biology is like this so much.
Research Associate I
Bachelors 3+ years exp. Must have experience with PCR, qPCR, RT-qPCR, ddPCR, molecular cloning, next gen sequencing, flow cytometry, cell culturing, and hands on experience working with (insert random organism no one ever had a chance to work with ever)
Starting pay $14/hr or you have the luxury of making $55k except you'll be living in San Francisco so basically you're back to $14/hr.
It's a level one position and biology majors rarely get into labs during their undergrad so almost no one who graduates has any of those skills. In fact, even if you do get into a lab you'll learn only one or two of those skills, but won't have enough experience to get hired. Oh and companies are disgusted at the thought of scientists training their staff in these techniques so it's straight back to the parents house for many bio majors. That's the system. It's awful.
Thankfully. I maneuvered and got very very lucky, but I'm still fighting to get to $50k which I call the magic number.
I clicked on the comment section, sure to find a link to the job in question. I was confident OP wasn't full of shit. Guess I'll just be sitting here playing with myself while I wait.
