As part of the software development industry some things are standard. Asking about your experience, skills, projects you have worked are usually expected. Job agents aren't technical people so a technical test is less common (unless they have someone they use to gauge your skills).
But I just got hit with a strange request. A job agent who I had a phone chat with wants to meet me in person.
We already went over the usual questions so I don't understand what I can offer in person that I can't over the phone. When I said I am unavailable for this she then insisted we do a "skype chat". I am an experienced developer and the last time I was asked to do this was 15 years ago when I was fresh out of college.
Is this common and what can I expect might be the motive?
