Yep I’ve used this and for the job. Find out who the hiring manager is by contacting the recruiter (there’s usually a name on there of who to contact), set up a coffee with the hiring manager and say you want to learn more about the role (but go prepared as to why you’re interested etc coz they might ask). Then just have a chit chat with them and at the end say you’re going to apply. It goes a long way and shows you are super proactive. Treat it like an informal interview. Worked for me:)

Virtual interviews suck... the next cost cutting measure is us pinching pennies on our candidates. Cut down one of the ridiculous dinners we have and instead give them a proper interview...
