The fact that some orgs already say things like ‘knowledge of effective altruism is preferred but not essential’ probably doesn’t solve this issue. I can imagine that many jobs are competitive enough that you could only reasonably have a shot if you ticked certain boxes related to EA knowledge/experience, even if you might be a better and more-aligned candidate but don’t have obvious evidence.
I think there’s information value from doing lots of 10-minute speed-interviews, at least sometimes, so that we can get a sense of how many competent and EA-aligned people might be off EA orgs’ radar.
p.s. I can confirm that Evan has been an excellent volunteer for the EA & Consulting Network.
