I've been job hunting for a while, last night I registered with reed.co.uk, uploaded my CV and applied for a few jobs. I had two voicemails a few hours later from two different people, both asking me to contact them for employment opportunities, one of which I have yet to contact.
The e-mail I recieved from the person who I did contact sent me this e-mail:
Dear Mr. X

prior to our meeting, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Briefing of our Meeting
Our meeting will last approximately 20 30 minutes. During that time I will explain
to you about our various organisations and our services. I will also advise you about
the training that we provide; what would be expected of successful candidates; the
job description; and we will then go onto discussing the employment opportunities
that we have available for you.
Please bring some form of I.D. with you as this may be required, you will need either
a passport or driving/provisional license and also proof of address i.e. bank
statement/utility bill. If you wish to talk to me before our meeting you may contact me
on details below.
I look forward to meeting with you in person.
Looking at their website they offer some sort of financial training. The other person who contacted me had an almost identical website but it offered I.T training.
Just wanted to know what to expect from this, are these people likely to waste my time and tell me to join a training scheme of theirs?
Just wanted your opinions, all help is greatly appreciated. Rep for all help.
