That went well...  
The interview went very well, I think. The job sounds fascinating -- exactly the kind of thing I've hoped to get into.

When I told them I didn't know more than the basics of AutoCAD or Illustrator, the response was, "are you willing to learn more?"

OH HELL YES I AM.

It looks like knowing esoteric stuff like hyperspectral image analysis may trump a lack of familiarity with more common stuff.

I should hear from them by the end of the week.

Hyperspectral image analysis?

Sounds like interesting stuff to have worked with. And this is part of their job requirements?

Yup!

I'm glad I rewrote my resume to emphasize it. It's almost as esoteric as my multi-beam sonar/seafloor mapping experience.

It all makes sense when I think about it -- classes to teach people stuff like AutoCAD are readily available at community colleges and such. Someone lacks that, you can always just plug them into a local night class.

Remote sensing? That's SPECIALIZED.

If any... see "esoteric skills", above.

That's fabulous news, Athelind! Best of luck in getting that job... an employer who's willing to train like that is golden.
