Here are three simple job hunting tips for you to begin your week!
- If you're driving to the interview, make sure the night before that you've got gas in the car. It seems like a minor thing, but if you're crunched for time and you need to spend ten minutes looking for a gas station to fill up, you could be late. And you could have the smell of petrol on your hands during the interview.
- Bring extra copies of your resume to the interview. Have them printed on a nice linen stationery. It looks nicer than plain copy paper, and shows that you took the interview a bit more seriously.
- Bring tissues, too. Don't be gross if you have to sneeze!
