Interviewing for a Director role in industry. The next step is a “scripted conversation” that will be recorded and then sent to their external recruiting firm for assessment. Anyone have any experience with this? Wondering what to expect and how to best prepare. I guess if it’s based on character or judgement skills then there’s only so much you can do to prepare though

Do resumes even matter anymore at a certain position (director +) I feel like it’s all about the interview, presentation, actual experience and relationships. Who reads one piece of paper and makes a decision about a person?

Currently interviewing for an Information Security Director role in industry with a TC ~ 210k. However, going through 5 interviews, I realized the role they are hiring for/asking for is a AWS Product Security Director skillset (which I have) and not what the original JD is asking for. The latter (IMO) is more specialized and demand a higher comp. How do I safely raise this discrepancy with the recruiter and ask for more comp? If so, what’s the market rate for Product Security Director?

Thoughts on reaching out to a Director whom I interviewed with before, but ultimately passed on a second round due to accepting another offer? Had interviewed in February, then pandemic hit and <6mo into my new job was layed off. Just saw a new posting for the same role I interviewed for before and wanting to gun for it. Unfortunately the recruiter whom I built a relationship with had left. Would it be proactive or desperate to reach out to the Dir?

Having had no communication with the company prior to this email, I was contemplating a response, until I received another email 30 minutes later saying they set the first email in error and weren't moving forward with my application. How do I respond to this? Will asking the reason why they're not considering my app hurt my future chances at this company?
