Typically they ask for "experience in: many things because
1. they want to throw anything they like at you
2. inevitably most the tasks they give you will have little to do with anything they asked for experience in.

"can you look after these old [ill suited [often blackbox] to their business flow] [cr]apps on our [motley collection of stale] pc's."

later on they'll ask you why you aren't applying you experience
"where's you magic mate? we're still stuck here using the same systems [that you had no choice in],"
... of course and your suggestions to change were soundly ignored/vetoed.

Oh sh*t! - Just described this job I recently took on with promises of good things.
.... time to fix that, ... note to HR sent.
