ModernPrimitive01: I'm currently on a hiring committee so I'm getting a kick out off........

Seriously though let me give everyone a bit of advice to say yourself and more importantly me some time.

1. If the job you're applying for, especially a job with a predetermined salary, lists the salary at a certain point, there is absolutely no need to go through the trouble of applying and then putting a number astronomically higher than that in the box that says "minimum required salary." No one will ever look at your application and suddenly decided to hire you for the 100k that you asked for even though the money budgeted for the job is 30k. Even if you're Jesus Christ himself, that's just now how it works.

2. Don't apply for a job if you don't meet the basic job requirements. I shouldn't have to sort through 30 applications to find the 3 qualified people to interview. The minimum job requirements are spelled out right there.

Dear God! Your life sounds difficult.
