Minimum Job Requirements

I know a lot of people looking for employment now or who went through a period of unemployment during the recession and I've heard a common complaint about employers who post impossible minimum requirements. This video is for you. Don't let the unfair job market depress you; just watch this video, laugh a little, then go start a business of your own. If you've been through the unemployment roller coast, I say just start your own business and take the ugly duckling's advice who after realizing his true status in the world "now felt glad at having suffered sorrow and trouble, because it enabled him to enjoy so much better all the pleasure and happiness around". 

Some of these job descriptions are pretty comical and I wonder if some of the impossible job descriptions I've seen posted ever get filled or if employers give up on finding Superman and just settle for someone who is an amazing professional rather than a perfect superhero. 

p.s. The person who contributed most to this video is my friend Dan Kubus who is currently looking for a job. He has an advanced degree in music education and is looking for a music teaching position. Also, he plays the piano better than anyone I've ever heard. Contact me in the notes and I'll connect you to Dan.
