Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Special Counsel (Austin, TX) in December 2008.
I had two interviews for this job - the first with a hiring coordinator for Special Counsel and the second directly with representatives of the client. Both were fairly short and straightforward, no tricky or obscure questions. The interviewers were all friendly and conversational, and they made their decision quickly. When they called to offer me the team lead position, I was told the client was impressed with my similar prior experience and my confident demeanor.
The rates are not negotiable because they are set by contract between Special Counsel and the client.
