The Night Before
If you have an upcoming job interview, your first impression might be your only shot. This is why it’s so important to prepare so that you can avoid being late and give yourself the best chance possible at getting the job. There are things you can do in the time leading up to the interview, starting with the night before.
You should never, ever save all of your preparation for the day of your interview. Last minute emergencies are sure to pop up and you’ll rarely be able to find everything that you need, right when you need it. Not only does this threaten to make you miss your appointment time, you’ll also be stressed and flustered, making it difficult to think clearly and answer questions to the best of your ability. Interviewers can sense that stress and could be turned off to hiring you. There are several things you can do the night before to ensure smooth sailing in the morning.
A Few Hours Before
Once you’re taken back for the interview, you’ll know that you passed the first rule of great impressions by being on time. Avoiding being late not only saves you stress and a headache, it could also win you a job.
