Go into the interview as if you are ready to take on a new job.  See what the new job would offer and then make a decision from there.

like you said dont get ahead of yourself….. check out who she is/works for

see if you can get her to send you any info on the company who has the job

on the bright side this could be a great but stay real bc a lot of those recruiters are just looking for any option….meaning be optimistic but dont start packing up your desk yet

I was recruited for the position I am in now.  I went in saying I wasn’t actively looking for work but I wasn’t going to pass up any opportunities eiither,  In the end, it worked out for me where this company offered me a deal I coudn’t walk away from.  You have a lot of control in this situation.

I think that you should go into it with an open mind and hear what they have to say. Sounds like you are genuinely curious about what’s out there and what opportunities you may be able to find. Just tell them that. Always be positive always be open. Don’t be negative or closed off until after you’ve got an offer – you never know what could happen!

Go- make a good impression. If you dont take this one you might take the next one.  Sadly, the economy is very fluid

@Pink Asawa:  Go in anyway, blow her away and make a friend.  If the specific job itself doesn’t interest you, a good way to establish her as a contact would be to point her to someone who is qualified who would be a better fit for the job.  Don’t flat out say you’re not interested, but soften it.  You’re interested in looking at your options, but X would bring a lot to this position.

This is an industry contact and there’s nothing to worry about with being in their database especially if you’re not just a potential candidate, but also a resource they know they can turn to in the future for other positions.  My dad has had a friendship with a recruiter for almost 2 decades now.  It started as one position years ago that they decided to hire someone else, but because my dad would not only consider different avenues, but also could direct them to other people, he ended getting 3 or 4 different jobs from leads from this guy.  The recruiter would also call him saying “we’ve got this, but they’re looking for someone more X, do you know anyone?”
