I'm curious both on the Searcher and Investor side - does prior experience in an industry matter?

SEARCHERS: do you seek out opportunities in sectors where you have prior experience? Or do you rather prioritize your search based on other factors?

If other factors, what are those factors?

INVESTORS: do you care if a searcher already has intimate knowledge of the industry they're searching within? Does it impact your confidence in that search?

If so, does it impact it a lot or just a little?
