Punctuality is important
First impressions are important. Arriving 5-10 minutes before the time given to you is a great way to show your potential employer that you value their time. Punctuality is a virtue that is highly coveted in employees. If you live far, make sure you plan your route ahead of time. It is always better to reach half an hour before the interview than half an hour after the interview.
If you’ve got it flaunt it!
References we mean references! The more the merrier, got certificates from courses you have completed related to the job? Bring them with you. Remember this is your chance to shine so give it your all. The more you can show your worth the better chance you have of landing the role.
