confused about whether I actually have an interview

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Mar 09, 2011 12:22 am

the interview was set up over email--I was asked whether I am free on a certain date and I said I am and what time would he like to meet and he replied asking if 2 pm is okay for me--I answered yes and asked a question regarding who I should ask to meet with once I arrive and have no received a response since.

what do I make of this?

how soon before the actual interview should I call to confirm?

I emailed a few days ago and did not get a response since then. My initial thought was that he was waiting to confirm who I would be meeting with to reply, but its cutting it pretty close now.

Meet to talk about a job is an interview even if it's not official. Wear business attire, and if they comment, just say you had someone else earlier that day that requires a suit.

Tomorrow at 1pm.

People are happiest just after lunch.
