Sloppy job description

How many hours did it take you to learn how to use a new software, such as Gmail, Facebook or Microsoft Powerpoint?

How many years did it take for you to learn how to make quality presentations, moderate meetings or master a programming language?

Every time I see job postings with ‘knowing how to use Jira’ or ‘proficiency with MS Office’ listed as necessary skills, I know that the company is looking for cogs to keep their machinery running.
