After a couple more interviews, he apparently impresses them enough to get an offer. (Which I wouldn't have doubted, he's a rock star.)

And they low ball him. Less than what he's making work as a network architect for a local municipality. So he asks for more.

Friend of mine was randomly applying on Indeed for network engineering jobs.

Recruiter reaches out and says she wants to setup a first interview with a client of hers.

Friend gets on a call, turns out it's a technical interview. He was not aware of that. There are six other people on the call. He hasn't been told who the company is.

He finally asks who they're from.

Meta.
