105 Responses in 4 Days

Four days ago we put an ad on Architect looking to hire an intern. We're looking for a low level person to run through quality control checklists and help manage the subs now that 13 of the homes are under construction. It isn't a glamorous job but it is good experience for a college student.
Within 4 days there have been 105 responses! Most of them are completely overqualified- some are licensed architects, some have over 10 years work experience, and many have their master's degrees. It is a sad testament to how much talent is sitting on the sidelines right now and how hard the architecture industry has been hit by the recession.
