Daily Job Seeker Tip: Don’t get lost!

January 24th, 2011 | Interviewing | No Comments »

It’s a simple tip, that you probably have the common sense to figure out.

Surprisingly, though, more people get lost on the way to an interview than you’d think. Getting lost is the worst excuse on the face of the planet, even if it’s the real reason you’re late. So get to know exactly where you’re going before you make the journey.

Don’t wait till the last second to program the company address into your trusty car GPS, in case it chooses to be not so trusty. Practice the drive if you have to and time how long it will take you. When you arrive on time the day of the interview, not only will appear professional and prepared, you’ll be much more confident and stress free from not getting lost on the way there.
