I work in a very small, specialized field with most positions being in non profits and education.
Typically interviews are conducted with the direct supervisor, possible colleagues, and sometimes heads of other related departments. Any HR interactions tend to be limited to references, benefits, and salary negotiation.
I have a phone screening with an HR recruiter early next week at a large global nonprofit. As I prepare, I'm trying to get in the mindset of speaking with someone who is not in my field and may know little about my speciality and the day to day work of this position.
Any tips on what to think about in preparing for an HR phone screen? I'd love to hear the insight from any HR professionals here.
