You do have to travel to interview or wait to be called in, but going into an interview with a newspaper or magazine can be seen as clutter. Don't take anything into the interview that you don't need.
No Large Bags, Briefcases or Purses
Try to take only a small bag with you with what you need. Anything bigger and you end up with clutter in it which can look not only bad but like you are not organised.
Ok you may need moral support but taking a friend with you doesn't look good. The interview is all about YOU, not you and your friend. If a friend takes you to an interview, make sure they either stay in the car or nearest coffee shop.
There have been a lot of bad experiences with parents attending interviews. They can be either over protective or a bit out spoken. Either way, it doesn't look good and will count against you. Leave your parents at home.
Yes this has happened. I have seen stories of people taking their dogs and cats and guess what........it never ended well. Please leave your pets at home. Interviews are about YOU and you alone.
Going into the interview with some shopping you have just picked up doesn't give the best impression of you. If you need to do some shopping, leave it till AFTER your interview. Yes this happens and employers do not like it.
Yes we all need something to eat before our interview but picking you a Subway, MacDonalds or even KFC and taking it into your interview again doesn't give the best impression. Some employers will think you are taking your interview serious. If you need to eat, do it before you leave for your interview.
Lots Of Jewellery
Some people think the more jewellery they were, the better they look. WRONG!!!!!! Employers hate it when a candidate turns up with lots of jewellery. Keep jewellery to a minimum.
