Be Punctual… but Please Don’t Overdo It!

by Jason Nemoy

For those that are in transition, you’ll find yourself landing interviews. And landing interviews requires preparation. When should candidates walk through the front doors of their potential new employer? In my professional experience, I’ve had candidates show-up a minute before the scheduled interview, and some 30 minutes (which I absolutely do not recommend.) My two cents….. 8-10 minutes is maybe ideal? It provides the interviewers just the right amount of time to close up what they are working on and put themselves in the right frame of mind. It also gives candidates an opportunity to get a fit-n-feel for the company (first impression), and a moment to simply breath and mentally prepare. Please be punctual, but don’t overdo it. Enjoy the experience. Be creative.
