In particular, why is this more relevant to a Perl programming site than, say, any of the dozen or so database-related questions I've seen considered with "deleteónot Perl" as the reason?†
I'm sure you asked this question seriously, so I'm wondering what fault you will find in the obvious answer: because the offer was for a Perl programming position. If it had been for a database administrator or an IT manager or a Java programmer, it would have been considered, downvoted, and reaped and if it got any responses at all they would have been rebukes. But, to Perl programmers, information about Perl programming jobs might have value.
