(Does nothing mean no energy as well?)

It's kind of you to post this add, and certainly would be nice to see
others, but I would like to comment myself.

Those items beyond "at least" should be in a "preferred" and/or
"pluses" category.    Many posted jobs, I have found to be very
demanding in requirements, though most postings come from
recruiters/head hunters.

I have seen programming jobs asking for the world, and the 2 or 3
recruiters I have asked if they were actually finding these people
tell me they are out there and waiting.    In the late 90's and very
near 2000, IT requirements seemed a lot more relaxed.
