Call me nuts or paranoid but I am pretty certain the last 4 interviews were ruses.
All 4 of them involved an overly friendly approach. Too friendly, in fact.
Something like this automatically gives me the willies. Kindly keep the approach to a businesslike format.
I read somewhere that the majority of interviewa are anything but; they could be part of a focus room, curiosity or maybe they only wanted to meet “you.” And who knows what reason they had for meeting “you.” Perhaps there is no job at all and they spoke to you for only a reason they themselves know of.
The approach was identical in all 4 cases. Why are they so cutesy and so friendly with me? They don’t know me from Adam.
The next time I see this kind of thing, I am going to cut the entire fiasco short. Give them 10 minutes, ask perhaps one question and then tell them the job is not my cup of tea and then scram. Why should I be party to any of this?
“We loved your resume”? Then what is the problem? Love my resume, love me. Right? This is why I am saying it is a ruse.
Trust your gut in all cases; it never fails and if it walks like a duck, you Harder World’ers know the rest. end the shenannegans there and then; don’t be a patsy, a pushover or a pussycat: take a stance for yourself and show some pride: get out of there asap.
