What I've learned this week:

Verify all information you are told by the recruiter at the interview(s).  It 
may not necessarily be the fault of the recruiter or the interviewer(s).  
Rather there are managers talking to managers and back down to other people, 
and things get lost / changed in the process.

My experience this week is the interviewers are claiming the job is 6 month 
contract-to-hire, and the recruiter is claiming it is direct hire.  The 
recruiter checked with his people after the first bit of confusion during the 
phone interview and supposedly it was cleared up and was indeed direct hire.  
Then at the second interview, I was told no, 6 month contract-to-hire.

So like I said, verify everything.  Repeatedly.
