"Wanted 2-3 years experience on iPhone development"

I have my profile on a couple of job sites. I have not had a chance to remove them in spite of landing a job. Because of this, I keep getting emails from different companies and recruiters giving the job description and asking me to send them my updated resume.

I delete most of them as soon as I see them.

A few however caught my eye. They asked for "2 to 3 years of hands-on experience on iPhone application development". They will never find anyone!

That's because the iPhone SDK was released in February 2008. Anybody who has done any iPhone application development has done it only after then! So, nobody can have more than about a year of hands-on experience on iPhone application development.

Some managers and folks in HR and recruiting have obviously not been doing their homework.
