It always blows my mind and makes me wonder if I'm completely out of touch or if people are really just full of shit when I read a job posting for an "entry level" and it lists something akin to the following: Skills/Requirements:
Proficient in English, Spanish, and Portuguese;
Database, SQL, Hyperion, Visual Basic; other programming languages a plus
strong modeling skills; ability to build dynamic 3 statement financial models; strong understanding of accounting and economics;
Strong GPA >=3.5 a quantitative discipline; Math, engineering, economics, finance; MBA Preferred
Salary Range: $45-$55
WTF?!?! Can you get this for under $90,000??!! It's always some boutique/family office/small fund, with a LATAM focus out here in south Florida, but it blows my mind. Sometimes I want to submit a fake resume with equally absurd qualifications and then give my lawn guy or handy man's contact info.
