Voiceofreason01: Some businesses are having trouble hiring people for entry level pay that have a Masters degree, 15 years of experience and at least 5 years experience with the companies proprietary software suite? You don't say....

DSF6969: A comment on the Yahoo article about this issue was brilliant:Companies want 20-year-olds with 30-years experience who will work for only $8.50 an hour.
Wicked Chinchilla: Qualified personnel are out there, they just aren't desperate enough to take a drastically underpaid position. Trainable people are out there, but if you want someone to know your damnably specific software suite you just might have to show them the ropes for a month. Painful, I know.
gonzojohn: I miss the good old days when HR hacks would post jobs asking for more years of experience with a product than it was actually invented.
meyerkev: sure haven't: eighth- and ninth-round callbacksThe fark.1) Ship in Resume2) Phone Screen/local interviews (Google and Microsoft get to do 2 of these, but they're special)3) All-day Onsite4) You're hired.* No guarantee of moving from Step N to Step N+18th and 9th round? The fark are they doing?
meyerkev: 8th and 9th round? The fark are they doing?
bgilmore5: The requirement I saw recently blew me away. They required you had experience with their incident tracking software.

CujoQuarrel: It could just be that you people suck.// Remember that come summer there will be a lot of field hand jobs in Georgia
ZAZ: Yet it pays more than $0k which is what an unemployed person is making.Unemployed people make about $500 per week. Link
Weigard: Luckily, in about a decade the majority of the workforce will be under-30s that don't know that $30k is a shiat salary and will gladly take it.
