Ambiguous Job Postings

As hiring managers, we've all seen funny, nonsensical resume statements. I probably have one in my resume, despite how often I've proofread it. Sometimes we get blind to the details when we've looked at something over and over.

It's not unheard of for job advertisements to have mistakes also, usually due to re-using and rewriting a previous ad. I came across one today. I am not going to identify the employer, but at the bottom of their ad they specify the following:
*This is an entry-level sales position, with opportunity to grow within the sales organization...

Previous experience selling to government accounts is preferred.

Ooooooo-kay, which is it? ;-)

Anyone else have any?
