I agree with Richard. If, as so many have stated, we are able to learn to
use new tools quickly, why not invest a bit of personal time and do so. We
don't need to master them; just learn enough of the fundamental operations to
so we can fake it while getting up to speed. The confusion typical of the
first few days on a new job can mask a great deal of panic, especially when
bolstered with some skillful misdirection.

However unimportant the "hot-button keywords" are to the performance of our
professional work, when we are at an interview we are working for ourselves,
and our job is NOT writing, but getting hired.
