I think I'm about to go for a job interview….I think….
Just be honest. As above just tell them what you put above.

Most go in the bin, but one was local and a bit interesting. So I simply emailed the admin person asking for a bit more information about the role etc and have ended up in this interview”sweaman2Subscriber
As you’ve currently described it I get the impression they must be struggling to fill the job. Probably because they mail shot all doctors locally and “I’m forever getting emails and leaflets for ‘come work for my company’ etc etc…Most go in the bin”
So the fact that you’ve expressed even remote interest puts you on the short list.
If the question comes up then as above I’d just say you aren’t sure and so would like a bit more info….Posted 9 months ago
So as a doc I’m forever getting emails and leaflets for ‘come work for my company’ etc etc…
Most go in the bin, but one was local and a bit interesting. So I simply emailed the admin person asking for a bit more information about the role etc – you never know – it might be £400k for 3 days a week, in which case I’m interested…
I’m now sat waiting to meet the MD and clinical director in a few hours, having emailed off my CV and been chased up for a time ad date for the ‘meeting’…
All I wanted was a job descriptoin and pay info. I’m not actively looking for more work…
I told them this.
So..if the question of “why do you want to work for medics in the buff*” comes up, what do I say…???!! (I’ll be straight and honest – to be fair it’s them that are taking up MY time)
*not real company. Yet….hmmm….Posted 9 months agowhite101Subscriber
Most healthcare related sales operations love to have clinically experienced and qualified staff on the books, it adds to the credibility of the organisation or product range.Posted 9 months ago
If its a sales role you will likely be asked to front up at exhibitions or give talks on why your product rates higher than others etc etc. If you’ve ever had a rep get passed your practice manager you should know the score.
I wasn’t at the interview 2 hours early!! I was faffing in town wasting time and drinking coffee!!
It was quite an interesting role.. White101 has pretty much described it. A bit of consulting too..
Not £400k though :-/
I chickened out about suggesting we all work naked though….
Hmm, interesting, but probably a ‘no’ from DrP..I like my spare time to much..

Those questions are daft, and I’d tell them why.
Then the truth. I work because I need a living, but what I am looking for is a job that does X, Y and Z (stimulating, challenging, rewarding etc). I’m here because I want to see if your company offers me this.
Then if you actually do what the job, tell them.
I’ve got an interview on Friday arranged on similar speculative terms. I’m probably not going to go for it. Hopefully another this week, for which I probably will. I wasn’t looking.Posted 9 months agoCountZeroMember
I was dreading having to go to interviews after years working, and any interviews in the past being pretty casual affairs because I knew people in the companies concerned, but my most recent one consisted of a twenty minute conference call being asked a set series of questions, ending with me being told that my team leader would be picking me up at stupid o’clock for my first job the following morning.Posted 9 months ago
That was getting on for a year ago.
