I am new to the community and have a question regarding an interview call with a senior expert from a Tier 2 company.
I applied to the company through a referral and the HR Manager told me that a senior expert from the company's consulting practice wants to have a call with me, she will notify me with more details. The senior expert works in the field which I am applying for and it was also the field of my studies. (I am not an experienced hire.)
I am surprised that I get this opportunity but I am not really sure what to expect.
This is why I am wondering about the three following questions:
- Is this a normal situation, without having talked to HR once?
- How can I prepare for this talk, besides reading his articles?
- How can I shape this call to be as pleasant and positive as possible for him?
PS: He is focused on SCM.
