When its a coffee, is it an interview?
“Yeah ok, she does sound interesting. I’m a little busy this week but I am happy to have a coffee with her sometime next week?”
Having a “coffee meeting” with candidates (or potential candidates) is a regular occurrence in recruitment. But for the candidate it can lead to a lot of questions… “What should I expect? Is this a real interview? How is it different to a normal interview? Can I pass or fail a coffee meeting?”
