Is it good to apply to a company if you aren't planning on accepting a role? I like to keep up my interview skills and search the market, but if I interview at a company I may want to work for some day, will they see a past interview as good? Or what about if I reject an offer?

You better bring your A game if you interview. If you know little about my company and don't show interest in the role I will tag you. We are interviewing heavily right now. A few people we offered rejected and I'd hire them if they become available. There are 2 I told recruiting to tag as not to be forwarded even if given a referral. Pretty clear during the interview they were just checking the field. I don't know how effectively our system can track this, but I hope it is good for at least a year.
