Interview Details – The whole hiring process has changed since was interviewed. When I interviewed for the job, I was placed on a register that 'graded' my skill sets against what they listed in the job description. This meant carefully going over the description to make sure my application clearly listed skills in the areas listed. End result? High score. With a high score I was listed high enough on the 'eligible' list to get an interview. The interview was fairly typical, but meeting with some key hiring decision makers a couple of weeks before the job posting, and 'expressing my interest (and abilities) went quite far in being hired. The fact that they had already talked about me gave me a good leg up when the interview time arrived.

Negotiation Details – Not a whole lot of negotiation. The salary rates are mostly set, and the hiring manager was greatly interested in doing all he could to get me the best 'package' possible.
