    Meeting following an interview

    I had an interview with this company 5 weeks ago, they have finally got back to me today asking for a "meeting" (not an interview) tomorrow

    I take it this is a good sign, what should I expect in this meeting?

    Sex?

    No idea, but asking you back has got to be a good thing.

    excellent, I will have to decline the Biscuits though as I am on a low carb diet

    Maybe they want to discuss further or have you in mind for another position?

    did you lie on your cv maybe they have found u out if u did lol

    I agree with Tinks. It's either a follow up to narrow down out of two or three prospective candidates, or they've filled the post and have you in mind for a different one. This happened to me once, the job they offered me was better than the one I'd gone for!

    The last interview I gave, I asked for a 'meeting' with the two best candidates.

    I took each one down the pub to see what they were like out of the office and the decision was made clear for me.

    Maybe it's something along the same lines? Something informal? Make sure you go with enough cash to buy a round!

    Sounds like my kind of interview :thumbsup:

    Can only be a good sign OP - otherwise it would have just been the dreaded letter you got.

    Crikey. I'd not know how to play that. Be the cool, friendly, drinking in the afternoon type, or the type that actually wants to get back to the office after a quick sarnie, to meet those deadlines!

    It was more important that they at least 'offered' to buy me a pint.
    You can learn a lot from how eager someone is to get their wallet out.

    that might be a problem as I don't drink!

    I guess the important thing is not to be complacent that I already got the job

    Not a bad thing at all. The guy I hired was tea-total. But he offered to buy me a beer, which I rejected.
    Going to the pub isn't just about getting sloshed.

    agree with what some else has said either you have made a short list of candidates , or you might be offered a different role within the company

    take it as a good sign if it was anything else you would have got a rejection letter

    There's a fine line to be struck between friendly/keen/hardworking and ****/nerdy/loner. They want you to say you'll give everything up to meet a dealine, but really... I had one interview where they were really going for the whole what would you do if... scenario. The answer they wanted could only be given truthfully by someone with no family or friends, or any life outside of work. But if they actually got that person, they'd be so socially inept no-one could work with them in the office. And this was at Social Services! They offered me the post, but I had changed my mind after the interview. I couldn't be that person!

    (Once again a proper word used in context is starred out...)

    Did you take one of their pens and not return them? They may have video evidence.

    Sounds like good news to me. good luck

    the job is yours if you sleep with the fat ugly staffing lady :lol:

    So I went to the meeting yesterday, they just wanted to tell me that they love me

    I just received the offer of employment from them, a very handsome offer indeed, more than what I expected
