Be early…not late. Time management and the ability to properly manage your time will be one of the criteria every employer will be looking for. The best way and best time to demonstrate you have this skill will be during your job search and the interviewing process.
Most people who are late are consistently late in all their activities…(a generalization for sure but unfortunately more times than not, true).
The alternative to being early is being late or even being on time. When you are late people have to reschedule their time and you are basically telling them you are disorganized, perhaps lazy and worst of all disrespectful. Being early, you are telling them you are organized, enthusiastic, reliable and interested.
Never risk being late…the consequences will cost you the interview.
Better 30 minutes too soon than one minute late. For sure!
