Second interview over with. That was... interesting. It's not exactly a "bait and switch" kind of thing, but the extremely vague job description that I applied for doesn't really describe at all what the actual job was that I was interviewing for. I mean, I always expect a little bit of disconnect between "official job title and official job description" with "actual job duties/description", but the description on the job opening itself was so vague and...hand-wavy (oh you'll be interpreting guidelines and may prepare reports...).

The actual interview process was unusual, too. Part of that is because this employer does government work, so they have to make sure that everything matches up in case the applicant becomes accepted and they have to do a background check on them (woo, security clearances). So, you end up talking to HR first to verify information, and then you go into the actual interview. The interview was extremely informal and sort of off-putting. He only actually asked me a couple of questions - he was mainly concerned with describing the day-to-day work and stuff like that. I mean, I don't mind, but it was just odd compared to the last few job interviews I'd had.

So, anyway, I won't hear back from either of those places for a little while. And even if I do get an offer from this place, there's about a 3-6 week gap between the acceptance and the actual start-date because of the background checks and everything.
