In my experience recruiters ask more functional questions. Why are you looking? Previous jobs etc and give you an overview of the position. CDs ask you more questions to see if you will fit with there needs/team. process, what work your proud of, can you do x thing the team needs, what are you hoping to get out of this etc

How you do anything is how you do everything

the recruiter is a vetting step. a gatekeeper. keep the totally unqualified from talking to the hiring manager - the hiring manager will make any decisions.

Did I mess up my first round? Recruiter set up team match call. I haven’t had any other interviews.

I have experience in both (more strat) but interviewer said to think on where I want to focus as he has openings for both types of roles. I’m worried I messed up because I said I wanted to do program management…
