This question already has an answer here:
There's a job that I've been referred to, that's quite similar to my current role.
I'm interested to find out more about the job, and to scope out how valuable I am with my current skill set.
However, I'm actually looking to move into to a different kind of role, so I possibly wouldn't accept this job if it were offered, as it's likely that I wouldn't plan to stay in it for very long, and I wouldn't want to get a reputation as a job hopper.
Are there any downsides other to attending interviews, other than the personal time taken to attend them?
