You’ve probably seen the story about the guy who decided he needed data to understand his competition, put up a fake job on Craigslist that was the kind of job he was looking for, and got 652 resumes back — 65 of which were from applicants with over 10 years of experience. (Though granted, the fake job was in NYC, so it probably drew applicants from a wider area than jobs around here.)
Yup, that’s exactly what jobhunting’s been like, this year. You can’t even get frustrated with it, because it’s too big to be frustrated about.
Thus my excitement about bagging any full-time job.
