It is irrelevant, but the guys that interviewed me seemed more interested in getting a feel for what kind of person I am, what kind of personality I have, what my interests are, etc., than my knowledge of all the stuff relevant to the job. I completely respect this. It could have been a big win scenario for me if they had been even slightly similar to me in any way.
Aha. I can vouch for that via personal experience. As I mentioned above, the job I interviewed for in 2002 was a lot like that, since they basically already knew I was qualified. Turns out my future boss (and his boss as well) were both fellow boaters, so we hit it off well and it was a slam dunk. Easiest interview I've ever had, and a very fortunate situation to find oneself in.
