I was shortlisted the other week by a recruiter and met a group of Venture Capitalists to fill some part time Finance Director roles in technology / biotech companies.
Wasn't really me but I did wonder who else had been shortlisted

So I scanned the visitors book, copied down the names and checked them out in LinkedIn.
Made me feel better that they were no better qualified. The roles have since been readvertised.

Any other tips for getting something more out of an interview situation?

That was a canny move on your part, nice one.

What are you doing applying for 'real' jobs, Martyn...? Wink

I thought you were set on self-employment... no?

I've got a portfolio of 4-5 companies for whom I work anything from 2 days/month to 3/days/week
For VC backed businesses, a part time FD is often added by the VC so the owners don't blow all the VC's cash.
These roles were only 2 days/month so fitted with the way i work

Ahhhhh... I see. For a moment there, I thought you were talking about full time work.
