12 Important Things to Bring to  a Job Interview

Congratulations, you have been selected to be interviewed!  You are now one step closer to getting a job offer.

This is your chance to show you are the ideal candidate for the position.  Your look, attitude, and responses to questions are critical in determining whether or not you will be hired.

The issue now is to figure out what to bring to an interview (aside from your abundant charm and appealing grin).  With these essentials on hand, you can feel less stressed and more confident.

When meeting the interviewer, they may not have your resume printed out. If you have extra, this will show them that you anticipated it and are ready.

Copies of Your Resume

You may need to jot down contact information or anything important mentioned in the interview process. The interviewer will also know you are interested in the job by taking notes.

Pen and Paper

Research the company so that you can ask meaningful questions. Don’t be afraid to jot down these questions and bring them with you to your job interview.

Questions to Ask

Having people write reference letters for you can help you tremendously because they can verify your skills, responsibilities, personal character, and past performance.
