You should always bring two things to your job interviews — a few copies of your resume and a notebook (oh yeah, don’t forget the pen).
The person that you are interviewing with likely has an electronic copy of your resume that they could easily print out, but don’t rely on them to do it. Bring a few copies with you.
Make sure that you bring a notebook and pen to take notes during the interview. It is always a nice touch to ask the interviewer, “If you don’t mind, I’d like to take some notes during our meeting… is that OK with you?”
The notebook can service a dual purpose — jot down important points and pearls of wisdom offered up by the interviewer, AND before your interview you can write down in your notebook the key points that you want to communicate during your interview. When you’re in interview mode (and in the hot seat) it’s quite a challenge to remember the bullet points that you wanted to hit on.
Good Luck… go get ‘em!
