Definitely ask the recruiter - can’t hurt. When I’m interviewing others for junior roles I look for a few things to come through...work ethic, positive/collaborative approach and overall passion for the business and to keep learning/growing. The thing that’s most important however is personality and team fit. Make sure you show you’re personable, can carry on a good conversation and inquisitive. Think about how to pitch yourself in 60 seconds when asked. ..What have you been doing and what are you looking for next? Other typical questions you’ll find - what excites you about this opportunity? How would your team describe you? Tell me about a time when you met challenge and how did you overcome. When you’ve had a good day, what does that look like at the end of the day? What would you say are your weaknesses? Make sure you come prepared with your own questions. But again, let your true self come through in your approach and try to be as genuine/natural as possible. Good luck!

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings.

It makes my passion for the field just go away.
