A Quality Company in eikaiwa

Last year, just for fun I applied to an eikaiwa school online. Now we know that most of these require nothing other than one being a native speaker of English (which is not required to teach English in reality) but this shows how ridiculous many of these places are. Below is an e-mail response I received. Below Shin's e-mail expressing interest, is the information I sent on their online application form. Would you hire this applicant for anything?
