When you’re eager to find a job, it’s only natural to panic and mass blast out your resume in the hopes that the numbers will skew in your favour. But what happens when you actually get called down for an interview, only to realise you don’t actually want the job after all?
While a situation like this might be uncomfortable, especially if you don’t want to offend any prospective employers, it’s not exactly uncommon.
