    yet, you don't say "how much" or "we'll sponsor non-US citizens".
    I personally hate recruitment firms and their bullsh*t.
    I can't remember anything along the lines of "poor interpersonal
    skills ok" or "sloppy personal appearance not a problem".
    I do like the "ambiguity" bit, but it'd be more appropriate to put
    "customer can't make up their minds about anything, so 'be prepared' "
