When you interview for a job, you are interviewing for every job the company has or may ever have, said Louise Fletcher in a post today on the Career Hub blog.
“If you are interviewing for lower-level positions, never assume it’s just for that position, especially if senior people are involved,” Fletcher writes.
“It is an opportunity to show your value and see if it leads to other discussions. Also companies might be hiring at lower levels but with the knowledge that they will need to promote or add at higher levels, it might be a test, it might be caution on their behalf, you will never know unless you go and have a conversation. At worst you make a good contact for the future.”
