    Re: Question of the Day : Job Interview - Arrival Time

    Hello,

    Let me conclude the question in my view.

    (Answer is "c").

    Arriving one hour early is a bit too extreme, and arriving one minute early will cause you to rush and be unprepared. The best time to arrive at an interview is about ten minutes early. Ten minutes is a reasonable amount of time because it allows you to handle surprises, and it also gives you enough time to finish any applications or paper work that you will need to complete prior to the start of the interview. It is also important to know where the location of the interview will take place. When I say arrive "ten minutes" early, that doesn't mean leave your home ten minutes early..

    Best,
    Chandra

    Best answer is (c) - It is about 15 minutes - but there is no 15 min - so that you have enough time to find the correct room or waiting room for the interview and check in with the receptionist or whomever you see first at the door. You should also take into account any time that you might need to fill out additional forms, prepare any documents which you have brought with you and take a moment to utilize the facilities to double-check things like that your tie is tied, your blouse is buttoned and your zipper is up.
