I think I'd feel overqualified

The Physical Demands requirements for a job listing:

The physical demands described here are representative of those that must be met by an employee to successfully perform the essential functions of this job.

While performing the duties of this Job, the employee is regularly required to sit. The employee is frequently required to use hands to finger, handle, or feel and talk or hear. The employee is occasionally required to reach with hands and arms.

To sum up:

1. The demands of the job are what it's going to take for someone to be able to do the job. Thank you for that apt description of what a "demand" is.

2. You must sit and, on occasion, reach. Maybe talk a little too.

The sad thing is that this job paid almost 40% more than what I'm making now.
