I turned down that job and so did the other pilot that interviewed.

From that I was offered an interview as a demo pilot with Embraer. That fell through due to Embraer requiring all pilots to be ANAC certified.

From that I met another guy who offered me the current job I have.
Absolutely all about who you know and not what you know.
