Summary of “Why you should say yes to job interviews”

What happens when you’re called in for an interview for a job you realize you don’t actually want?
There are plenty of good reasons to attend a job interview, even if you don’t intend to take the job.
Attending job interviews can be nerve-wracking, so the more experience you have under your belt, the more confidence you’re apt to gain.
Candidates are often advised to do trial runs before attending actual interviews, so if you’re invited to meet with a company you don’t think you’ll end up working for, you can use that interview as a test run of sorts in order to do better in the future.
It’s not always easy to convey the entire scope of a role in a single job description, so if you’re willing to take the time to attend an interview, you might find that the job in question is more appealing than you thought.
A better job at the same company might become available later on.
If you go into an interview for a job you’re convinced you don’t want, there’s a good chance that you’ll walk away from that interview feeling the same way.
Of course, if there’s absolutely nothing redeeming about a given interview you’re asked to attend-say, the job is a dud and the company’s future seems bleak-then by all means, politely decline.
