I have a short call tomorrow with someone at the company I am applying to. Planning to talk about company culture and the interview process.

Any advice on how to approach this?

Ask meaningful questions that can’t be looked up online, make it more of a conversation. Show your interest by doing research prior

Be prepared for them to say something like, “Tell about yourself” or “tell me your story” and figure out how you want to respond. I’d do a mix of your educational background, expertise, and a little about you as a person.
