I have an out-of-state job interview this week, and I’m wondering how to handle a couple of things. I had a gastric bypass 6 weeks ago, and it has me concerned,
The hiring manager knows I had abdominal surgery, because he called about my resume while I was still in the hospital. He doesn’t know what I had done, however. If the topic goes beyond the “How did your recovery go?” type of small talk, should I tell him about my gastric bypass, or fib? My instinct is to be truthful in an interview, but downplay it as much as I can. I’m not a good liar, and I don’t want to be caught when I’m asking for a new job.
I’m in near mortal fear of being taken to lunch, and this is the biggie for me. I despise lunch interviews on general principles, but now I have the added wrinkles of a minimal stomach and a limited range of what I can consume. Any suggestions here?
