To be eligible for EB2, I heard that job must require an advanced degree.
My question is, does that mean job (as an industry) must require an advance degree for entry into the field? (like doctor and lawyer)
or does that mean specific job position by a company must require an advance degree?
With an increased course requirements, most of accounting students will have master's degree and most of pharmacy student obtain pharmD (doctor of pharmacy)
But those jobs do not require an advanced degree to be licensed.
-Those people who have an advanced degree (but not necessary), will they be considered EB2 if job position by company only requires bachelor?
-What if job position requires masters or doctor degree?
'Advanced degree' means a US degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a US degree above that of a baccalaureate. A United States baccalaureate degree or a foreign equivalent degree followed by at least five years of progressive experience in this specialty shall be considered the equivalent to a master's degree. If a doctoral degree is customarily required by the specialty, the alien must have a United States doctorate degree or a foreign equivalent degree.
'Exceptional ability in the sciences, arts or business' means a degree of expertise significantly above that ordinarily encountered in the sciences, arts or business. Exceptional ability is a very high standard, but is less than that of 'extraordinary ability' found in the 'priority worker' category, thus a degree by itself is not enough.

I concur with the response my colleague, Mr. Fleischer, has provided to you.
This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A consultation with an experienced attorney is always the best way to go.
It means the job itself. It is the requirements of the job that control whether the position is EB2, not the degrees the employee has.
