I am currently in the middle of a selection process. The selection has several stages, and I am one of the last ones. I have a friend who has been working on that company for 2 years.
Today the company is having a summer party at a pub and at that party friends and partners of the actual employees can attend.
My friend has invited me to attend and so my questions are:
Should I mention to my friends I'm on the selection process?
Should I tell them my actual status on the selection process?
Note that those responsible of evaluating my future interview will probably be at the party.
