Print and Read Your Resume
You don’t want to go to your interview empty-handed. Also, you definitely don’t want to go without being familiar with your resume. Many job seekers don’t bring a copy of their resume with them, and many don’t read it over even if they do. The reason why this is important is because you need to be familiar with what you’ve written on there. If you can’t explain something from your resume, that leaves a bad impression. Prepare for interviews the right way and study!
Pick Your Outfit Carefully
The night before, you want to make sure you have everything in order for the morning. Many job seekers fail to prepare their outfit ahead of time and struggle in the morning. It can waste valuable time and can cause you to become distracted if you’re wondering what to wear. Take the stress out of the morning and do this the night before. That way, your outfit will be ready for you to hop into in the morning. Even if your outfit is casual, this is a great time-saver.
Think of Questions to Ask
Interviews are also a time for candidates to ask questions. A candidate who asks questions during their interview shows that they are interested in working for the company. When you go to prepare for interviews, this is something you shouldn’t skip out on.
Take Care of Your Hygiene
This involves both the night before and the morning of your interview. Make a good impression by ensuring you are well-groomed, clean, and smelling fresh. Avoid commonly-smelly foods like onions, brush your teeth at night at in the morning, and make sure to use the bathroom before you leave.
