It has been my experience that when a business sets out to take on a new hire, the company powers-that-be don’t have a clue what they expect this new person to be, do, possess, or offer. They draft a job description that is more imagination than fact, go through some obligatory interviews and then make an offer to a complete stranger, usually the one closest at hand when they decide to make their decision.
Suggestion: Start interviewing for a position that is not even open yet. Keep looking and talking and interviewing and checking references. Do your homework. This hiring stuff is important!

more time and effort is spent evaluating
the cost and benefits of a new copy
machine than a new employee."
