Depends on the job and the area and how it's advertised.

I have hired 4 people in the last year. The least was 34 applicants, the most 119. These were very specialized positions requiring 3-4 years experience.
Probably half were well qualified, another 25% barely, the rest should not have bothered. In all cases we had a tough decision with several people
that based on the interviews and sample work project could have been a great fit. Unfortunately only one of each position so many people had to be rejected.
