Talent Acquisition Recruiter Interview

Talent Acquisition Recruiter

I applied online and interviewed at Ochsner Health System.

Interview Details – Must complete a behavioral interview questionnaire online at the time of application submission. Phone interview with senior recruiter manager, with focus on your experience/walking through resume. Wasn't given too much info on position during interview. Definitely a "sell yourself" type interview. No communication following the interview (not even an email that they had selected another candidate).

Interview Question – No technical questions in initial interview. Questioned my experience extensively, esp since I was coming from a non-healthcare industry.   Answer Question
