  1. It seems like a reasonable number of people considering there were 150 jobs. Maybe 4 or 5 people per position which many people would consider fantastic in their sectors.

  2. There were 2,000 reported applicants for roughly 150 jobs (not all full time either). This would push the number per position to around 20.
