This person (not the hiring manager) was trying to get me to identify why I did not fit his preconceived notion. Although I did not know the specific person he mentioned, I was able to show him how I did in fact know and actively engage with the specific department he mentioned. Being able to give him real-life examples of how I interact with other departments, demonstrating my team-work and problem-solving abilities made the case. He ended with "I now know why Jeff wants to hire you."
