She let me know that she was going to have me do another phone interview with Expedia's Director of Design. I was feeling confident for that interview and was under-prepared. He was impossible to read - just asked a series of open-ended questions and let me talk until I stopped, then he would say "okay," and ask another question.

When I followed up with the recruiter, she let me know that this made me seem like a generalist, when they wanted a specialist.
