Tips for Getting the Job: Be on Time!

Appearance is not the only thing that is important when it comes to interviews.  Being on time is just as equally important.  It is crucial to be on time for job interviews if you want to get the job and impress the interviewee.  If you are late to the interview  it can make the difference of whether or not you will get job offered.

As a rule of thumb I recommend being five to ten minutes early for an interview.  You will never be punished for being early; however, you can be punished for being late.  Some people might think that being late to an interview might mean that you are not responsible and will not take the job seriously.  These negative perceptions can greatly affect your chances of getting the job.  Five to ten minutes before your interview time is a good time frame to arrive for an interview.

It is also a good idea to know where the location is of your interview.  This will help you get a good idea of how long it will take you to get there and what time you need to leave to be on time.  Driving out to the location the day before your interview is ideal.  This will prevent you from getting lost and stressed out on the day of your interview.

Being on time is one of the many things to remember when preparing for an interview.  Arriving early is crucial if you want to receive a job offer.  Many interviewees not only expect but also appreciate when candidates arrive on time to interviews.  So remember, be on time!
