Odd hiring requirements for Informix gigs

The job market is so odd right now … “Informix DBA” – required skills include developing applications for mainframe/MVS skills, 4GL application development, installation of operating systems, and much more. I’ve noticed more and more that there are A LOT of job openings – full-time or contract – that ask for a DBA for database X, but include a boatload of other, very specialized skills as well. I guess this is why these gigs stay open for so ┬álong?
