One of the reasons for the more requirements might be the economics crisis.
There are many people searching for a job currently, probably many people in the field of yours. That creates a situation for the company where they
can choose workers.
I can bring an example from here. Here is lots of unemployed people also, although there is also a deficiency of workers in the fields of IT and
Whenever I look at the job market, I see how many jobs, especially easier or more popular fields are constantly raising their requirements. I know
even some book-store put a requirement of higher education in literature. There are so many literature students without a job, so they have the option
to choose. Same is with sales: Nearly every even easier cashier job requires work-experience + speaking at least 2 languages, sometimes even 3.4. That
is crazy in my opinion, although the companies have the right to choose among the large number of applicants.
On the other hand nearly any out-of-school engineering or IT-worker with a bachelor degree can easily get a higher-than-average salary job without
nearly no requirements except paper as it is very hard to find workers in these areas.
I personally do not like the way some companies use the poor situation of some people in order to profiteer from it.Some place pay minimal which is
nearly impossible to live from simply because there are desperate enough people who would work for it, even though it is too law. Rather this or
nothing. Same goes for the requirements. As there are many people to choose from, they simply raise the standards, often even too much, although as
there are people who are capable of it, they can do it. This is capitalism after all, based on the supply and need, whether we like it or not.
