About to have an on-site interview that I’m not very interested in (low $ offer). I want to use this as a practice run though. How to get out of this disinterested mindset & make the best of it?

Train your mind to think of it as your only ever option otherwise you end up homeless with no money to pay for FB access.

If you’re gonna put up a fight about pretending to care then why even try? Just treat it like practice and use getting a good practice round for your real interviews as motivation

I think it's more important to practice your negotiation skill and ask for more salary

It’s one thing to take a practice interview but in really, really bad faith to negotiate salary if you have no intention of taking the role. If anything just note what they offer you as a data point and way to support your worth.

Your goal should make a good impression anywhere you go. You never know who your interviewer may be connected with (personally or professionally). You want them to be able to say you were an impressive candidate even if you don’t take the job.

Good motto

Is the word "disinterested" or "uninterested"? But I digress.... been in the same boat. Just imagine it's your dream job with 90% pay bump. Repeat that everyday prior to the interview

Think of it differently: this industry is small. If you go in and do a garbage interview, that's how these people might remember you. Years from now when you're up for a job you DO want and they're in charge of hiring, wouldn't you rather they remember you as someone they wish they could've hired?

Thank you!!

I just recently joined a team. The organization's stand is they don't care where we work from. Most people work from office once/twice a week and I generally go once a week.

How do I handle this?

I can’t seem to be resilient enough to keep nurturing the relationship with friends I made after 25 yrs old (roughly). We hang out for a bit. Exchange numbers. Maybe have a couple of casual chat. Then it fades… I am happy to see his/her new status on LinkedIn. I may like some social posts. and certainly wish that person all the best. I would love to hang out again if the friend initiates anything. But I lack the momentum to truly “own” it…

Now things are different but still this question comes up and I'm struggling to answer it.
