Things You Should Bring to a Job Interview !!!

You’ve applied for a job, gotten a callback, and most likely passed a phone screen. This signifies the in-person interview is approaching. Take a moment to congratulate yourself at this point—you’ve put in a lot of effort and perseverance to get here. After you’ve mentally prepared and decided what to dress, the final step is to ensure you’ve brought the necessary supplies.

What should you bring to a job interview?

1. Several copies of your resume
Bring at least five copies of your resume. Keep them in a separate folder or professional folio where they won’t bend or wrinkle and where they’ll be easy to find.

2. A pen and some paper

Take notes on the questions your interviewees ask and the unexpected insights they share. You can use these remarks to follow up with a thank you email later on.

3. Prepare pre-written interview questions for your interviewers
Add at least two or three pre-written questions for your interviewers to have on hand when you put the resume copies and blank paper in your folder or folio. It’s a good idea to jot them down ahead of time in case your mind goes blank when asked, “Do you have any questions?”

4. A list of references
Your interviewers may not ask for a list of references, but it’s always a good idea to be prepared in case they do.

References should be persons who can speak to your professional qualities and achievements. If you don’t have much employment experience or can’t quickly identify people to serve as references, think about any groups or voluntary activities you’ve been a member of. Former professors or community leaders who can address your commitment and work ethic are also viable possibilities. Do not include family members and do not include pals.

5. Breath mints or floss
Bring something with you to help you maintain good oral hygiene. 
Choose the option that will make you feel clean and confident, whether it is mints, gum, floss, or toothbrush and toothpaste.

6. A backpack, briefcase, or portfolio that neatly holds all of your belongings

Once you’ve determined what you’ll need to bring to the interview, you should plan how you’ll organise and transport them. The idea is to appear well-dressed and unburdened. Choose a professional-looking purse, briefcase, messenger bag, or portfolio that can hold everything. Backpacks are appropriate in some circumstances but not in others. Use your best judgement based on your company study and knowledge of their culture.

7. Instructions for getting to the interview
After all of your meticulous planning, don’t let a late arrival jeopardise your chances of landing the job. You should arrive 10–15 minutes early and plan your route to the interview ahead of time. If you’re taking public transit, allow for delays or unexpected interruptions. If you’re driving, make sure you have parking information—if you’re working with a recruiter, you can ask them to supply this information.
If you are still running late after all of your preparation, contact the office or recruiter with whom you are working. Most of the time, people will be understanding, but it is crucial to be considerate of their time.
