Do you think I should bother to send in a reusme for this job?


The relevant points of my question:
  • It says 1+ week of full-time work, but I would probably not be able to give 40 hours in a week, but probably close to 25. Of course, I'm quite a bit more efficient than most people, so me working 25 hours could possibly get done what they would expect in 35-40 hours.
  • It says that experience editing computer science manuals is required. I have much experience editing math textbooks (middle school, high school, and college), but none editing computer science manuals. However, I do have a degree in computer science.

Now that I've read the posting, I'm assuming that the first number in the first bulleted item s/b 40...

They say about one week's worth of full-time work, but they don't say that they expect you to do it in a week. That is, I'm assuming they said it's a week's worth of work so you could figure out how much your salary requirements are, not necessarily what their schedule is.

I think you're close enough to their requirements that sending in a resume is worthwhile.

I agree with magid it looks like they're giving you the amount of time as a reference for you to know how much time they expect it will take when all is said and done -you can probably schedule your own time accordingly.

I say apply - it can't hurt.

Apply, since they may not get someone with absolutely every requirement. If you think you can do the job, apply and convince them you can do it.

Worst thing they can do is not call back.

My feeling is that if a person is interested in a job, they should always apply. Let the potential employer make the decision as to whether you should actually get the job. The real decision then becomes, if offered, do you want to take the job. At that point, you should also have much more information about expectations and that sort of thing.
