for some reason I can't comment on that page, so here is my comment here.

I agree that there has to be a little bit of both. The problem that I have is that most job ads sound completely cliche. Just a bunch of promises, with virtually no differentiation.

However, as with the rest of the lame process (getting past HR, etc.), I think the job ad should be taken with a grain of salt. Or a teaspoon of salt. There is a system to get around the system - in other words, doesn't it make sense to figure out what the job really is all about (which could very well be different than what is posted in an ad)?

Furthermore, the higher paying the job the more cliche it will sound. There is a huge difference between a $10/hour phone job and an executive job, but they each get the same amount of space in a job ad.

And here's my Typekey page, since the one they are linking to doesn't work: http://profile.typekey.com/albajasongmailcom/
