The Innanity of Human Resource's Candidate Vetting Processes

I checked back up at a job site run by a college HR department, and noticed a status code "Does Not Meet Minimum Requirements" for a reason an application last year was not accepted. The was curious, because the requirements were:
GRADUATION FROM A FOUR- YEAR COLLEGE WITH A MAJOR IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, COMPUTER SCIENCE, OR CLOSELY RELATED FIELD AND THREE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN OPERATIONS ANALYSIS AND DESIGN, SYSTEMS PROGRAMMING, OR CLOSELY RELATED FIELD; OR AN EQUIVALENT COMBINATION OF EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE.
Well, I graduated magna cum-laude with a BS in Mathematics from the same institution, hold an associates degree in computer programming, a certificate in business market development, and have worked in all aspects of businesses large and small for 20+ years. I'm not sure where I missed the boat on that one.

BTW, the screaming caps were theirs, not mine. Apparently the HR people don't know about the shift key.
