There are some items that you need to be aware of that are extremely important, i.e., making excuses as to why you are late for the interview.
You should ALWAYS give yourself extra time in case of traffic or car problems; and always take more than one copy of your resume with you; you don’t want to assume that H.R. has given a copy to the hiring manager for the interview. Always take at least two pens with you, making sure that they both work. And ALWAYS, ALWAYS turn off your cell phone before the interview starts.
Of course, these aren’t all of the things to be aware of so please read our article Ten Fatal Interviewing Mistakes.
