Have you used Zoom before? If not, I would recommend that you practice your menu skills with friends BEFORE talking to the boss. You don't want to look for the volume button in the middle of your conversation. It depends what kind of device your using i.e. cell phone,tablet,pc. Menus are different. I fumbled several times with my subordinates when I first got started. You don't get a second chance to make a good first impression
Great advice. Plus Ive heard advice to ensure your zoom background doesnt have something controversial viewable. Ive never used zoom, and I think Ive read there are ways to project a virtual background, but dont know if thats true or not.

^ Great point!

Select a good background, and don't forget to dress properly below the waist, too....can never tell when that laptop lid will get pushed down by a cat jumping on the table or when the cell-phone/tablet gets bumped off the table by the doggo! Or when some emergency might arise and need to get up!

Good advice. I did exactly that before I had an interview on Teams. Always best to know the functionality ahead of time so you are not fumbling about in a meeting. It certainly helped me knowing how everything worked ahead of time. One less thing to worry about so you can focus on the interview itself and not whats driving it.
 
I may be jumping the gun on this but Im excited to share, I also need some help.
Many of you know I spent 20 years in the firearm industry, 15 years with Marlin Firearms as a production worker and CNC machine operator making Bolt Action gun stocks. The last 2 years with Marlin after the company was purchased by Remington I was a process setup specialist. When Remington announced they were moving Marlin from North Haven Connecticut to New York I took a chance and applied at
O.F. Mossberg & Sons which home office and original manufacturing site was less then a mile from the Marlin plant. Before leaving Marlin I had a job with Mossberg. I started out as the wood room manager in their home office in North Haven improving the process and adding new tooling and new process fixtures. When I started at Mossberg they were making bolt action rifles but did not make their own bolt action gun stocks, they were buying them from multiple vendors and experiencing constant issues with the fit of actions and finish. A year and a half into Mossberg employment I was promoted to the Engineering Project Manager in charge of updating the current wood room in Texas which was already finishing the shot gun wood stocks being made in Connecticut and tasked to add a manufacturing facility to make Bolt Action Gun Stocks. In 3.5 years Mossberg was making 17 different models of Bolt Action Stocks after installing 3 CNC Machining centers and machines moved from the Connecticut plant. Many of you may know of the Patriot Bolt Action rifle, the walnut stock for that rifle is my pride and joy as I worked exclusively with the design engineering team on the action cuts and built all of the CNC programs to get it done. There are roughly 100 Stocks out there with my signature under the recoil pad.
May of 2015 my job with Mossberg ended and although I moved to Louisville Kentucky to work as a Facility Manager for a Navel armament company my love has always been my time making guns.
Now to next chapter. While checking my LinkedIn account this morning I saw I was contacted by a recruiter about an opportunity to work for a firearm company as a process project manager on upcoming new products.
My friends this is where I need your help. Who has heard of
CAA INDUSTRIES? Ive done some preliminary research and find they are a reputable company and big on tactical add ons to firearms currently on the market. Now here is the kicker. All the information I can find states the company is located in Israel.
Thats right I said Israel.
I have a second phone conversation scheduled with the recruiter on Monday at 10:30am until then Im on pins and needles waiting to see if my next firearm career takes me to the other side of the world. 丹儭
So, who can tell me what if anything about CAA INDUSTRIES???
No expert in this field but... If this company is involved in making pistols into "faux" SBR's (google Roni and Micro-Roni) their future is closely tied to politics in the US. One glitch with the ATF and bingo they are essentially history. Ask them if they are willing to put funds in an escrow account to cover your re-repatriation to the US should your job disappear. If they can't set aside $5+K to insure your getting home how solvent could they be? You are investing a lot to take the job, they should be willing to ante-up some stake also. Or, ask them if they are willing to fund your relocation, to where ever they want you to work, in US or abroad. Common practice when hiring valuable employees.

Thank you for your concern however the position Im looking at is at a manufacturing plant within the US.
