30,000 newbies per year

The Classifieds section of the Sunday paper here in Nashville (The Tennessean) featured a little story on behind-the-scenes jobs in the television industry. It gave nice little tips on finding employment and described the types of jobs one can find. Everything from news director to associate producer was listed, but this sentence caught my eye:

“With over 30,000 people applying for these jobs each year, experience will be your best asset.”
Thirty thousand new behind-the-scenes people? Holy inflated expectations, Batman!
