Externship? So this means a permanent job? I've never heard of externships, only internships. I hope his idea of meeting him for drinks at his restaurant means coffee or tea! I dont think it sets a good premise for a job to drink during an interview, JMO.

nah, i figure he means drinks. many interviews are kinda different when you are professional chefs. & plenty of externs are eventually your career. we may see with mine? details later?

A nice glass of wine to sip on would be ok if he was doing the same IMHO. A Long Island Iced Tea may be pushing it

Good luck luvs!

Do you think you "put him off" though by not filling out an application? You're not playing the game "he'll want what he can't get" are you? You can do that in some situations but not in a job situation - no employer plays that game. I'm just curious what made you not fill one out.

What was the point of speaking with him if you were not interested in applying?

Luvs - are you still in culinary school or taking break right now. I thought the whole purpose of the meeting last night was a "job interview". Isn't an externship something you do while going to school? Otherwise it would be called "a job", right? Aren't you required to do this externship....isn't it part of your schooling - requirement for graduation?

...maybe I missed where you said you were taking a break.

Externships doesn't ring a bell with me. I have only heard of Internships.

Sorry that you are upset and I didn't realize that he was talking about after you finished your schooling.

Have a fun day - go out and do something and it will take your mind off the meeting.
