Meet for coffee? Stop wasting our time.

how to avoid meetings

So tired of the “we should meet for coffee or a drink” requests from people who clearly have not looked at each of our profiles to recognize the obvious… the only reason you want to meet with me is to try and leverage my network.

Come on, stop wasting our time.

Truthfully I see very little value in meeting. My intent is not to come off rude but be directly honest instead of making up some lame “I’m too busy” excuse. If you claim to value transparency then you should most likely agree.

I wish you well but I just don’t see the value and feel you deserve an honest answer.

Seriously if we tried to meet with everyone no real work would get done.
