Third possibility (maybe this is the "misrepresented" option)...
too much cut and paste - somebody in HR has no idea what the jobs are
about and just posts a boilerplate set of skills for any open
position. If you can make it past the phone interview you should be
set. A few well-placed buzzwords in a resume (irrespective of context)
should trigger automatic sorting algorithms and at least get you to
that stage.
