Why aren't job positions truthful?

Finally I am graduating and now it has come time for the job search. For the field each open position has a report on the branch and position, which is from 10 pgs-40 pgs long, each branch is different. Why if you have a 40 pg report can you not state all the job requirments? I know that you are making up new rules. Is it any wonder why your position has remained empty for 3 years now?

I send in my application and I get back an email stating ""I am writing to let you know that we have received your application for the ... position at .... The demands of this position are such that we have included five years' experience in the list of required qualifications. We will keep your application on file, however. Thank you so much for considering us."

If you read my resume I have more than 5 years experience in the field, just without the degree. If you don't want new graduates just state it. —Stop making up rules
