I'll translate the corporate speak for you:
"We are too cheap to pay for off the shelf software, or extra developers to code the functionality we need, so we steal borrow utilize as much open source software as we can in our internal systems. Therefore we only want to hire people who already know how to program against those specific software libraries."

Knowledge of data access in general and the pros and cons of ORM's and the situations where they should and shouldn't be used? Who cares! All we need is someone with awesome Hibernate skillz!!
