I recently applied to small company which I got a referal from a previous company I just applied to few weeks ago (they don't have openings as well). I sent an email attaching my resume and the General Manager of the company told me:"
"We don't have any immediate openings at the moment in our communications department however would be good to meet as something could potentially come along soon. Let's schedule a meeting next week and my secretary will coordinate with you"
Does the General Manager just being nice to me for the sake of being referred by his friend (General Manager also of the company of whom I received referral)? Or perhaps is it true that they might have future openings? If so, is it right to ask the timeline how long is that "soon" could be?
