advertisements include the following information:
1) Title of the job to be filled
2) Name of the person, organization, or business that is seeking applicants
3) A description of the job
4) A list of requirements (education, experience)
5) Documents the employer wants to see (diplomas, certificates)
6) Directions that tell how and when to apply

and answer the questions.
