So I know there has been some discussion on this list regarding
unrealistic job requirements at the "guru" end of the spectrum. What
are your thoughts about the same phenomenon at the "newbie" end of the
spectrum? In particular, does it strike anyone as odd to require 2-3
years of prior experience for a "junior" position in a field that is
<10 years old?
