    This actually looks like a well-rounded job description, and doesn’t make the very mistake that Karen Lopez talks about in her post of throwing in a lot of extraneous (and usually incompatible) job requirements. What it DOESN’T say is the geographic location of the job. There may well be those among us (myself included) who are interested and have the experience (5 years at Wells Fargo), but cannot relocate due to family considerations. I DO see that by clickiing on the link (which wasn’t particularly obvious on my screen) it takes you to what looks like a New York location. Despite being a native New Yorker, I’m not really eager to go back! Oh well…
