I had an interview yesterday at a firm I have been chasing for many months.
I felt the interview went well, though I was a bit nervous.
In my interest section on my CV I have written that I went to a culinary school a few summers ago, and it was actually a discussion point in the interview.
I wonder if it would be appropriate to send a box of homemade cupcakes, brownies or similar along with a hand written note? Or should I stick with the traditional route of email? I'm seeking unpaid intern work.
I'm in the UK (London) and a bit worried it may be interpreted along the lines of bribery. I know that this sort of a gesture would be appreciated in many parts of the world, but I'm not sure if we in the UK are a bit too reserved and conservative?
They are an informal small firm - approximately 20 of them, all male. As a woman, if I do this, would I be setting myself up for "you belong in the kitchen"-type comments?
