Has anyone been approached by a ‘Talent acquisition specialist’ at a company for a ‘discovery call?’ Is this similar to an initial recruiter screening?

Has anyone used Calendly to help track the dozens of interactions and calls with recruiters and agencies? I am either spending hours on the phone scheduling or being ghosted even if I reply within the day I receive the job description and invitation to talk.

My skills are under the umbrella of risk management, business analyst, business systems analyst or risk analyst… there seems to be high demand and I’m looking to stay organized and set myself apart by making it easy to schedule time.

I got a call from the Google recruiter about my L7 em interview Google She said I did overwhelmingly good on all interviews except one had mixed feedback on a system design. No surprise because it was not a good interview. The recruiter said i had a choice to go to hiring committee, give referrals they could call about my system design or take another system design interview. I’m not confident about the system design because of the bad experience I had with the previous interviewer. What should I do?
