When you can tell not to bother to apply ...

I spend a vast deal of my time combing through listings (thankfully, mainly ones that come in via Twitter feeds) for jobs. I open things that look "plausible" in new tabs and eventually run through the application process all at a go.

Every once in a while a job comes through that's in the "right category" and the title seems OK, but then I get into something like:
Demonstrated ability to design complex transactional interfaces, taxonomies and metadata frameworks ...
Am I wrong to assume that my having no idea what they're wanting in that "requirement" means that I'm the wrong guy for the job?

As the sales cliché goes ... "Next!"
