Not ready to interview - but getting calls

Cisco target
Sep 2 5 Comments

Hi folks , I just started preparing and am nowhere ready to interview ..however I am getting contacted (emails) from recruiters from my dream companies for positions . What do I do ? Should I reply to them and tell them I can only interview later or ignore them now and email them only when I am ready ... I don't want to be pressurized to interview now but at the same time don't want to miss these great opportunities!

Also , from the preparation perspective on a scale of 1-10 (10=best) I am at a 3 currently .. how much time would you think to get to a 7-8 if I were to allocate dedicated 3-4 hrs everyday for prep ? (10 will take years ). Please , share some tips to prepare and pointers on how to tackle this ocean of information . Where do I start and what all should I prepare ? I am targeting a senior QA role . Thanks !

    Take an interview now that you don’t care about.

    Reply to them and ask for a couple months. And keep doing that until you're semi-ready (you'll never be completely ready, and you don't need to be)

    Also, them checking in with you after every few weeks will keep your preparations on track.

    Tell them you are busy now and you can interview in 3 months?

    These are not really opportunities if you are not prepared right now. Take your time to prep. Most are willing to contact back depending on the headcount.
