AT&T future surplus here. Actually what HR is doing is low balling the job so no USA person is qualified. You think they don't know that 40/hr is a joke? They will then either H1B that job or offshore it to Tech Mahindra in India. So not nuts, just another global corporation adding to the grand zero sum race to the bottom.

Most of those required skills aren't equipped by college grads. Video compression? really? lol. College courses aren't real experience. 5+ years and "Up to $40/hr" lmao. So the actual rate could be $30-$35/hour. These guys are out of their fking minds. They laid off so many engineers, now look what happens!? Pathetic.
