It's not about answering to buzz words, or answering to everything.
Instead, try to figure out what they want done, and if you think you
can do it, then answer.

For instance,and this may be a bad day started at 6:30
am. Take a posting where they want System, Functional, and Technical
Requirememts for a system based on technology you don't know. Maybe
since you don't know the technology, you would pass on it. However,
your goal is not whether you know the technology, but whether you
know S/F/T Requirements. They HAVE experts on that technology.

With every posting, see if you know how to get to the target, then
during the interview, convince them you know the target and getting
there is your skill.
