LATE ARRIVAL: Your conduct at an interview is a strong indication to employers of how you will perform if hired. Showing up late is a surefire way to give someone else the job. Employers really wonâ€™t care to hear about your glowing resume or career accomplishments if you show up late. Simply, put: Donâ€™t do it! Always plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early and if you know you tend to be late, set the bar at 30 minutes. Also, traffic and train delays arenâ€™t acceptable excuses. Take every necessary precaution to make sure youâ€™ll be on time. Your career is depending on it!
