Know nothing about it. Looking for general info. Recruiter reached out

Dont do it, its mundane work

A recruiter reached out to recruit you in a field in which you have 0 experience?

@P3 Not like that lol, a general advisory recruiter reached out and I expressed an interest in wanting to try something new. The recruiter liked me apparently and is looking to place me somewhere within their respective firm and passed my information along to the R&R group and they wanted to speak with me.

^btw, I personally find the work interesting.

How do I handle this?
