I have been a member of a military for the previous 30 years and working in a specialty field for the last 15. A week ago, completely out of the blue, I got a phone call at my office from someone who does my kind of work in a civilian company, saying that my name had been referred to them as a possible candidate. The company concerned is a world leader in its field and this job would present an almost unbelievable professional opportunity and challenge as well as a significant quality of life enhancement - in other words an ideal situation at the right time in my life offered to me on a platter (assuming it happens).
I was asked to email my resume, which I did, and two days later I got a phone call from a company HR rep wanting to know if I was interested and then offering a phone interview with same HR rep and my potential boss next week.
My question is, assuming that the interview is successful, how does the process work after that point - from a contract negotiating standpoint etc? Are they likely to email me a contract to review and discuss by telephone or would they fly me to the location for that stage of things etc? I would appreciate any insight to this and any number of things that I probably haven’t even considered.
I’m not asking for prophecies here but I assume someone out there is an HR type who actually does this function and I would be curious to hear what the different methodologies are for this sort of thing.
Thank you very much
