Approach for recruiting/informational call vs. interview
I was approached by a recruiter about an opportunity for an executive position. Similar to most outreach I get over LI, he asked to set up an informational call to tell me about what the company has been up to.
I have never held this level of position (but this type of role would be next in my career path, it’s not a big jump) and I haven’t interviewed for anything this high before. In fact I haven’t interviewed in years since I’ve been promoted internally.
I prepared some high level talking points about myself, job, approach. but have been operating under the assumption the call would be focused more on being sold on the job and would later lead into a standard interview process. But I’m suddenly nervous I may be under prepared for the call this afternoon or approaching it the wrong way.
Should I assume this call will be more focused on the recruiter and the company/job, or should I approach it as if I had applied to a job posting and go in to sell myself?
Thanks for any advice!
