It is up to the buyer to set the minimum requirements. Be happy they were honest with you, and now you can take the action needed to get the position you want.

Good luck.

I'm playing the stupid game and am now in college. So far, I've learned how to write papers to the specs that each professor wants. It's a joke, but it's how the system works.
In a better system your boss would say, "We need someone with very good writing skills for that position. Here's a free online tutorial that will provide all the information you need and help you practice. When you're ready, you can take the exam and get your class A business writing certification. Then you'll definately be considered. Good luck."

Hopefully he would spell definitely correctly. Did those free tutorials fail to cover that?

Exactly. My direct supervisor acknowledged I have the skills. It's a game. I just have to play by their rules or leave. So, I changed majors and will leave the game.
