It's been awhile since I had a job interview as I've been in my current post for 3 1/2 years.
A job for an IT manager has come up where I work advertised internally only and although I don't actually want this particular position (my eye is on something else in IT service delivery) I was thinking it may be worth applying for the interview experience.
My concerns are:
- If I apply and tell my peers the reason I am doing so is for the interview experience they may not believe me which may lead to some negative behaviours towards me.
- If I apply the interview panel will feel I am wasting their valuable time (and potentially mine).
Can anyone advise how they would view an internal candidate knowing that they do not actually want to get the job?
Thanks in advance.[/list]
