I happened to have been going through my files today. I wrote this spoof years ago and had not read it in a very long time. I opened it this morning and laughed so hard I cried. I have decided to definitely do something with this, because it is just hilarious. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this as I have to mock the job market out there in one way or other. xxxooo
