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