Don’t be Deceived – It’s Never JUST a Coffee!
Recruiters and employers are increasingly resorting to more covert ways of assessing candidates and finding out about them. If you are a prospective candidate, you can be certain that your social media presence will be checked out, and that means both your LinkedIn profile and your personal Facebook page. It is not unusual for candidates to be rejected based on what is seen on either of these.
The second way that candidates are often being vetted is via the supposed ‘Coffee’ meet up. The line goes something like this:
“Let’s meet up for a coffee before you actually interview for this job. I can answer any questions you might have and fill you in a bit more about the role”.
It all sounds innocent enough, but you need to understand what is really happening in a ‘coffee’ meeting, and why you shouldn’t be fooled by the line “It’s JUST a coffee-not a real interview”.
