> Whadaya bet the advertisement is overly specific and tailored just for the guy they want to hire?

Seems like it would be foolhardy for it not to be..

Similarly, when I moved to the US on an L1-B, my company needed to claim that I had very specialist skills that couldn't be filled locally (which arguably I did). However the specific skills that they claimed I had were BS, period. It's a means to an end, not an end in itself.
