Further update:

Remember that time when the lady who scheduled phone interview with me stood me up instead? No, not that time, the time after that. Yeah. Well, we exchanged emails again and she called me this afternoon (just twenty minutes late, but who's counting?).

Another excellent interview. She's a recruiter for a big consulting outfit and they're looking to add an engineer to a team that does work in my town, right down the road at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. She decided to forward my application to "the team" and they'll decide if they want to interview me. That second interview will likely be a phone interview since the team has members from San Diego to Puget Sound to Tokyo. If they like what they hear in that second interview, the recruiter said they'd be willing to make an offer based on the second phone interview.

Some of the details were ones I had to say no to, unfortunately. For example, the opening requirement is a Secret clearance, which I do not have. We talked about it and she said if "I'm the job" (gah--don't get me started on the level of biz-speak... level-set, SME, show you my cards, etc etc) meaning they really like me, that they'd give me work in the non classified areas while my clearance was being ... cleared? created? validated?

Anyhow, the money's right, the location's right, I'm stoked!

Not surprising, companies are looking for gems like you every day. In their defence it ain't easy winnowing out the chaff, and making a mistake can be very costly. So they are cautious which works in your favor at this point, in that if they hear an answer they don't really like they'll take the time to ask another one to be sure.
