One of my friends from the USA will be visiting the UK at some point using her visa free travel, she has previously been here before over the last few years.
At some point in the future, she wants to move and work here, and wanted to know the legalities about meeting with potential employers when visiting us, if that is not her main purpose for the visit.
She isn't planning on actively handing out CV's and applying for actual jobs, she is more so interested in if she meets with people from companies, to build up a rapport, so she could then pursue a job with them in the future. For example, having coffee with a studio manager, or visiting a workplace.
Would these things be seen as straight up job hunting (therefore violating the terms of her visit) or not?
