The Job Listing Describes the Perfect Candidate, Not the Probable One

When employers write job ads, they list the qualifications of the ideal person for the job. They know -- and accept -- that they probably won't actually find someone who meets every criterion, but they still ask for that person, just in case.

This Test Is Graded on a Curve

Thanks to years of schooling, you've probably become quite accustomed to being graded on a percentage basis. If you earn 90 percent of the points in a course, you get an A; if you earn 80 percent, you get a B; and so on.
