Going into an interview is a nerve-wracking thing. You never know what you should bring, and you never want to show up unprepared. Here is a list of 5 things we recommend you have on every interview to ensure it goes smoothly!

1. Copy of your resume: Even though your interviewer has already seen your resumes, it is always a good idea to keep handy.

2. Mints: Popping a mint right before your interview insures you have fresh breath and those onions for lunch don’t cause you to miss out on a new career path!

3. Notebook/Pens: Be prepared to write down additional information such as follow up instructions or a 2nd interview. This also gives you a space to write down the answers to any questions you may have prepared for the interviewer. Tip: Have a backup pen just in case

4. Questions for the interviewer: The most prepared candidates bring a few questions of their own to ask the interviewer. For a list of possible questions, Click Here. 

5. Cash: This one may seem a little silly, and no you are not bribing your interviewer. You may have to pay for parking. It is always a good idea to bring a few dollars with you.

6. Bottle of Water: If you feel you must bring a drink, only bring one small water bottle. Keep it tucked away until you are ready to drink. Do not bring coffee or a cup with a straw and lid.
