Wow! I didn't know about that. We had quite strict qualifications in place, so it helped to cut-off the majority (whether they just applied or were serious), but I agree that 300 was way too many. Although I believe these days you can simply put your resume on "search engine" (paid of course), so it'll send out that resume to any position that has "matching word(s)".
