You receive a job offer you had applied to and are qualified for, but did not actually interview for. The hiring manager seems to think you interviewed. It's your dream job. Do you accept it?
If it's your dream job, don't turn that down lol
If they think we interviewed they might be confusing me with someone they actually interviewed so I'd have to mention that. Wouldn't want to walk in and have them be surprised.
If you have worked for a company for a long time you have built up a reputation. That reputation can open doors for you without you asking because others see your qualifications. However, they should still ask if you are interested in the new opportunity
He'll definitely find out sooner or later but I'd just be like "what interview?"
I'm in Air Force ROTC. The way one colonel described it, it's basically a four-year interview. There are multiple pass or move out points, but again, it isn't one deciding interview for whether or not I will commission. It's my entire performance that will be reviewed.
Sometimes the interview is not one person talking to another. They observe you and how you react and interact potential clients.
I'm a bit concerned about a company who to get to that step without an actual interview... I would definitely mention the lack of an interview & begin investigating the company.
Ever heard of Intel?
I would still be concerned about my potential manager having thought I'd actually interviewed for a job that I hadn't... that doesn't make me feel like it's going to be a good work situation.
Oh absolutely. This situation isn't exactly what happened to me, but pretty close! It was extremely surprising for a company like that and clearly something went wrong in their process. Funny story though
Not right away, I'd point out the lack of an interview because it may easily come out later, and suggest we do the interview right now.
