Interviewing Workshop - Before the Interview
Verify the Details
Where is the interview?
Do you know where to park? Where is the entrance is to the building? It can be helpful, if you're not familiar with the company, to make a 'dry run' before interview day to determine how long it will take you to get there and to familiarize yourself with the layout of the company.
What time is the interview?
Plan on getting there 15-20 minutes early so that even if something happens -traffic, you get lost, etc.- you'll still arrive in plenty of time. It is NEVER acceptable to be late to an interview!!
With whom will you be interviewing?
Be sure you can spell AND pronounce the interviewer's name and title. If this person is a division head or manager, find out as much as you can about his/her area so you can ask pertinent questions.
