I received a call today from LM, and I suppose that was a preliminary interview of sorts. My interviewer mentioned that my resume reflected what they needed for NIH (their client). After a series of in depth questions concerning my experience, when I would be available for work, and my salary range (all of a 20 minute phone call) she mentioned that LM moves fast with interviews and hiring, and told me to expect a call sometime by the end of this week.
I was stunned. Does this really happen? I honestly applied for the job thinking I would never hear from them!
I am also thinking that this is contract position, am I right to assume this?
