They didn't give me a whole lot of direction either, was left with the impression that I was supposed to clairvoyantly determine the right topics of discussion.

Must not have picked the right collection to talk about, because I didn't get the job. Probably for the best.

Sounds like it might have been a top secret, gubment posishun.

I told the recruiter that I could not provide her with a compensation range, frankly because I had no clue about the company and the role. I guess that flew with her because she suggested we get on a call anyway. In the meeting invite she sent me, she included the company. Not sure if that was by accident or on purpose.

Either way, it's for a major cyber security firm. I fail to see how my qualifications fit there, so I'm filled with self-doubt. Further, it sounds like it'd be a contractor position. My gut is that she's just a clueless recruiter trying to fit a role. I have no IT / cyber security experience, so I can't see how she thinks I'm a great fit. confused.gif

In any case, it looks like it'd pay very, very well.

I know it's from a couple days ago, BUT you can get discounts at online shops, if they have a chat setup, you can use it like you would a shop employee.

Most of the larger ones get the stuff insanely cheap, due to the amount they buy, so they have more room to play anyway.

Cyber security is a good industry to get into right now. All our people are going nuts trying to recruit decent cyber security geeks, but keep getting outbid by the private sector.

Companies could be more flexible because of limited supply, recruiter could be clueless, or she could just need some more resumes to hit a quota.

Nope. She's foreign and her english skills seem to be a little lacking (at least over email).

It definitely is. I'm intrigued by the sector. In any case, she was supposed to call me earlier at 9:30 today. I got a call at 9:34 and it literally rang for 1.5 seconds before it became a missed call. I didn't even have a chance to pick it up.

I emailed her notifying as such. No response. She calls again 10 minutes later. Same deal; rings for 1 second before I could even answer. Emailed her again asking for her extension because I tried calling back her number and it was a generic number for the recruiting agency.

No response.

My comment is consistent with my disagreeable disagreement with the ass-clown, lawyerdad.

might have just said like, the watery water or something.

Anyway, you've now posted three things (consecutively) about which we can not disagree. Are you flirting with me?

Starting to feel like this is a diary for me, so if others want me to stop poasting about my job search, happy to STFU.

Just got off a call with one of the recruiters (not the initial recruiter who reached out to me, thankfully?) and it's for an Implementation Project Manager for cloud-based solutions for Fortune 500 clients. I don't have any direct implementation work experience and honestly this is work I feel people who are way more certified for would want to tackle.

Recruiter seemed impressed with my background though and said we should continue with the process. I'm kinda lukewarm though, TBH. Will be getting the job posting tonight / tomorrow, so I'll have more details. But implementation work does not sound sexy, at all. I feel like implementation work would require me to be much more technical. It's also a 6-month contract position "with the opportunity for it to become full time."

@aravenel do you have any experience here, brah?
