The company I work for does financial consulting for utility companies.  Most of our folks have years of experience with the logistics division of major utilities.  Our nuclear division usually hires ex-navy guys who went from working on nuclear subs to working in nuclear power plants. 

We're actively seeking new folks, as many companies are.  Our HR person gets at least a half dozen resumes a week. 

...usually I don't hear him laughing loudly over any of them.

When I went into his office to see what was so funny, he just handed me a resume from some guy who has a bachelor's degree and less than 2 years of experience.  He then pointed out a specific area of the resume.

This guy's starting salary requirement?

$700,000 a year.

Good luck with that, pal.

Typo from $70,000? (Not that that excuses it, on a resume).
