I took a selfie holding a sign that said "I'm out of the office", then converted it to ASCII, and pasted it into an out of office message.

I also crafted my out of office once to look like a maintenance/downtime notification from IT.

I'm a nerd, but pretty proud of those.

Connected with hiring manager who asked at the end if I was interested in a role they’re posting soon. Passed on to HR recruiting lead who, in our intro call, said they were looking for someone with different experience. Both hiring manager and recruiter said they think my background would be a good fit for the company and want to stay in touch about other opportunities. Should I read this as pleasantries or legitimate interest in finding a role that fits? Like the company and people I’ve met
