:rules:

Am I out of line to think these requirements prove that the economy is still floundering? For a while there were a few car dealerships requiring salesmen to have a bachelors degree. . . no harm in asking for it if you can get it, I guess. I'm just surprised these requirements weren't listed as "preferred" or "either/or" instead of "required" and "both/and".

I'm not knocking the job or the company. . . I actually have somebody in mind that I plan to send this to.

Edit to add a genuine thanks for the post!
