I'm a software developer and these type of job advertisments are way too frequent here where I live.

We're looking for a student software developer, paying 4€/hour. Wanted experience: C, C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby...

To be managed by someone with little to no clue, who will be earning your annual salary in a month, and will be taking credit for all work you do.

Yep. This shit is why I'm trying to get out of IT. The working class of professionals. Fuck that shit I'm out.

Don't bother with construction, at least if you're where I am. You either are part of he inner circle... family or close friends with someone of authority in the industry... or you are paid terribly, laid off at the drop of a hat, and have terrible hours.

And the unions are horrifically corrupt and in bed with the companies.

So... yeah, good luck finding work nowadays.

must have 5 years of experience using a technology that's been only out for 6 months.

The reality is I get contacted all the time for those jobs and i have less than 3 years of experience and make more than 90% of my liberal arts friends.

When I was in my mid twenties I actually had trouble getting a job because I had about that many languages in my CV, I liked looking at languages, I had to take a few languages off. I few HR people were kind of snotty about it. I'd get stuff like, I'm sorry we want an C# programmer not a C# and SQL programmer.

The problem is that they've had the good life for so long that they don't really know what it means to try without success.

It really depends on the boomer you're talking to. Most (ex-)machinists, autoworkers, miners, adjunct professors, and dockworkers, and the rank-and-file in public service (water, waste disposal, education) are all too familiar with financial insecurity and mass unemployment. It's a easier discussing these things with them than say, rich young people whose sole concerns revolve around being edgy and postmodern.

no, they're okay with starving people who are so worthless that they can't get a job anywhere except wage-slave employers.

And your opinion is just as bad, if not worse, as it basically takes the approach of "everything is terrible so why try".

If you aren't in prison, have two brain cells, and have the capability to print a CV that isn't shit, from my experience finding a job is hardly difficult. (And I doubt it's somehow harder in the USA than in the UK, considering the employment rates are similar).

We are looking for "the one." It reminds me of arrogantly picky people on dating websites.

Has anyone ever had any luck applying to an overly ambitious job ad like this?

Every IT job ever, due to cokebrained ideas of MBAs.
