Starting at the end?

So that guy called be back and wants to have me in for an interview next week. (Woo hoo!) …but it was odd. Instead of first asking me about my background like most HR people who call me, he starts by asking if I have any questions about the company. I thought that was odd. Of course, there are a TON of questions I have (especially since I couldn’t find that job description again) but I decided to ask him to tell me a little about the company history. After that he went into the usual kinds of questions that headhunters and HR people ask me…except he asked what salary I made with Usually only the headhunters ask salary (especially for contract jobs) and companies save the salary inquiries until later…or at least later than the first contact.
Anyway, it was odd. …but if they’ll pay me, it doesn’t matter. 🙂
