They use Lotus Notes. My approach with this sort of meaningless filler
is to find out about Lotus Notes and then match it to something you
*have* used.

Having worked in many companies that use Microsoft office software, I
have to tell you that the odds are you'll be an "expert" if you know
*anything* about them. MS Office apps are very easy to "get started"
with. Once you get below the surface, the water is *very* muddy. So,
knowing a bit about the *real* MS Office will get you lots of brownie
points. Same goes for Lotus Notes.

I have to say that when I read job postings, I first translate them into
English from HR/Recruiter-ese.

As always, never claim expertise in something you don't know. Instead,
do some research and then tell them why your related background matches
what they're looking for.

I saw a job posting that required the usual suspects, Word, Excel,
Visio, PowerPoint, FrontPage, Adobe Acrobat And then, Lotus Notes! I
know nothing about Lotus Notes, why the heck would the company throw a
curve ball in there like that? What on earth could they be talking about

Thanks, I feel better now.
