The new "entry level" jobs mean you must have at least three years experience doing a similar job, or only one year if you have your Masters. No, I don't have previous experience working in a museum or speaking Spanish. But I did have plenty of classes about statistical analysis. I guess I wasn't good enough to get an interview for an $11.50/hr job as your evaluation assistant. Good luck on your second attempt at posting that job. If you are going to post a job and include "must have excellent writing skills," you might want to double-check your own posting for spelling and grammatical errors. When I come in for an interview, please have the decency to let me know that I did not get the job. I took the time out of my workday to come in and talk to you. I wish I could take back my "thank you" letter. When you do give me a rejection letter, please do not start off by telling me how you received so many qualified applications and unfortunately I was not one of them. Fuck this shit.—Anonymous
