Arriving late for an interview is one of the biggest tell-tale indicators for any employer.
It tells the interviewer:
- You are disorganized.
- You have poor time management skills.
- You are not really serious about in the job opportunity.
- You just have ‘bad manners.’
- Worst of all, you are rude!
If you know you are going to be late, (and you would know long before the actual time of the interview) why wouldn’t you call, text or email ahead to let the employer know you will be delayed.
Saying you are sorry doesn’t count…..you are still late.
Remember, employers have choices. Why would an employer hire a person who demonstrates this bad behavior?
