What does a “successful” intro meeting with a headhunter look like?

If you’re talking about PE headhunters it’s a little bit different. You need to have your story for why PE straight, explain what types of fund (AUM, industry focus or generalist, location, investing strategy, etc) you want. Occasionally will need to answer basic technical question or simple paper lbo. With a PE HH your first intro is a first round interview where you are proving you’re worth their time. Typically PE HH will do the intro and as opportunities come up they’ll email it to you but won’t usually have one for you at the first meeting.

With HH for most other jobs you’re just getting to know them and they’re getting to know what you’re interested and tell you if they have a role that might be a fit.

Was part of an oncycle process where I was told I’d be moving on but due to scheduling conflicts with other interviews it never happened. Now found out from a friend they’re recruiting off cycle, would I be able to reach out to the HH to get my resume sent it? Or would they not consider it again?

I was part of Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd.
The HR relationship manager was Deepa Vishwanathan. I resigned in May two years back and last working day was in Aug after serving three months notice.
However, due to error on human resource part they updated record as last working date in May. So whenever I was applying for any position there was mismatch in last working day mentioned in my resume and in human resource records with Kotak. Does it have impact on my profile not getting shortlisted?
