Arrive to your interview early, don’t be on time, be early.
Murphy’s law will eat away at the paltry extra ten minutes you allotted. Arriving early has its advantages.
1. You get to breathe and relax before the interview begins; go the restroom and double check your look.
2. You have time to review company information, your resume and your questions.
3. You can chat up the receptionist, getting a feel for the company and culture.
No one has ever complained about a prospective candidate being early…EVER.
