Best time for an interview

Postby fleabag » Thu Nov 13, 2008 8:43 pm

I've been given a date for an interview but can chose to have it at 8.30 am or 6pm. Neither sounds great as I'll either be blearly eyed or really wired from spending a whole day stressing. Any suggestions?

I'd say that 8:30 in the morning is a bad time to have an interview as you'll be tired and if you are already working it will make you late for getting into work. At least in the evening you'll have woken up and your brain will be active from dealing with people or being in the office all day. You'll also avoid having to lie to your boss as you can slip out of work and off to the interview...I guess this only applies if the interview is close to your current place of work.

Definitely agree . The chances are that the person / people interviewing you won't be that alert at 8.30am either. Go for the evening by which point they should have woken up too!

Nice post,

Applying for a job interview can at time be a nerve-racking experience for some. For others who know the tricks of the trade, it is like any other day at the office. However, a job interview needs a lot of preparation especially because sometimes the interviewer gets better of the interviewee. Job interview questions can also be unnerving especially for someone who is appearing for an interview for the first time.
