Yes - by definition.   Is there a point to stating the obvious?   That being (restating the obvious) that as more detail is given fewer consider themselves qualified.

I'm afraid I can't say how to fix this - one field after another gets overstuffed with underqualifed candidates.   The go into the field because the hear the prospects are good. They would be better off going into a field because they like it.

Doing something you like; something you're good at?   That's the way to earn a living.   Beats working for a living any time
