Maybe They Mean Doggy Years

This morning, LinkedIn thoughtfully sent me a list of job openings in my area. There was one for a Public Relations Director. I’m not looking for work, but I clicked through to confirm my suspicions. Sure enough, here is the list of qualifications a candidate should meet (italics are mine):

Qualifications:
Bachelor’s degree required; graduate degree desirable
At least 5 years of experience including demonstrated success in senior-level public relations and analyst relations.
Writing experience highly desired as well as ability to adjust author voice based on audience
Demonstrated interest and competency in making complex issues/ideas easy to understand
Familiarity with software or technology is desired
Experience working within media, analyst and/or social disciplines is desired
Proven success interacting with all levels, including C-suite executives
Initiative to identify and creatively resolve issues for positive results
Demonstrated ability to successfully lead and develop staff
Exceptional prioritization and analytical skills
Exceptional project management and organizational skills

In short:
