That word you keep using… I do not think it means what you think it means.

Headhunter email. Title: Fantastic remote working opportunity!

Me: Hi, I might be interested in this role. Could you tell me a little more about it?

Recruiter: Sure! The company’s office is based in the east wing of a stately home. It’s right in the middle of the countryside but the house itself is surrounded by beautifully kept gardens so there’s great opportunities to explore during your lunch breaks…

Me: But it’s remote working, right? How often do folks have to go into the office?

Recruiter: Oh no, you have to be in the office everyday.

Me: So it’s not remote working?

Recruiter: Yes, it’s a very remote location!

Me: Thank you for your time.
