Care to enlighten the rest of us on what an AMD is? Not a commonly used title, as far as I know... (and yes, I realize my title on here is weird)

Delegating, ensuring that all work is client ready, growing/mentoring teammates and managing relationships with internal teams. It’s different from a supervisor position because you have to manage relationships more (politics,) grow your team (have growth chats and promo timelines) and you have to view all work through a client/business lens instead of just a media lens.

I had an interview with a recruiter for a financial company for a GC role. She explained how they were having trouble finding candidates and that I seemed perfect.

Has this happened to anyone before where the recruiter thinks you're perfect but the hiring manager will not?
