October Interview Tips

Communicate about your schedule
Interviewing can be a challenge if you’re currently employed. Most companies will want you to do an hour interview in the middle of the day, and that can be challenging if you’re already working 9-5. Be open and honest with your interviewer about your schedule. If you can take a half day on Wednesday to do a face-to-face meeting, but they suggest Thursday, don’t be afraid to ask to reschedule. Some potential employers will even sit down with you before or after hours to better align with your agenda. They understand that getting away in the middle of the day can be challenging, so don’t rush through an interview or jeopardize your current position by trying to please all parties.
