Once you've landed a job interview, be sure that you are well-prepared, as this is likely your sole chance to convince an employer that you are the best candidate for the job. Your appearance, attitude, and answers to questions are all key factors in determining whether you will get the job. Competition is also high among job applicants, and you are probably one of several interviewees. With this in mind, you want to leave a lasting impression that increases your chances of a call back for additional interviews with others or a job offer. To prepare for a job interview, it's important to first understand the interview process.
10 things you should bring to a job interview
What to Bring to a Job Interview
Landing an in-person interview for your dream job is a big accomplishment, but the last thing you want is to fall just short of the finish line. Our smart phones have essentially become an extension of our bodies, so it can be easy to rely on them to provide directions to any location. This may seem obvious, but many interview candidates forget or leave their identification at home on interview day. Many buildings have security desks and require some form of photo identification. Never get caught in an interview without a pen and notepad. Bring a folder with three to five additional copies of your resume.
What To Bring To A Job Interview (And What NOT To Bring)
Bringing copies of your resume to an interview is essential. It makes you look professional and prepared. However, you don't want to carrying slouchy bags or bulky cases filled with makeup or too many extras, so think carefully about how you are going to package your resume stylishly before you walk in the door. Your bag can reflect your personality, yet be impeccably professional.
