Don’t Bring it to the Interview!
When you leave for your next interview, be sure to leave one thing behind…
Employers are complaining: during interviews people forget to turn off their cell phones and interesting ring tones begin to play. It wont bode well for a candidate if Lady GaGas latest release begins to blast from a briefcase, handbag or suit pocket. Even if youve set it on vibrate, it will break your concentration as it flutters away. As difficult as it might be to leave it behind, please do so.
There are those who have actually answered the call in an interview! This is not advised.
Its annoying to hear cells going off in movie theaters, concert halls, plays and even churches. But, the one place a cell phone ring will damage your career future is in an interview. Whats more important: getting the call or getting the job?
