When going for your job interview leave home as early as possible and arrive with time to spare.

It's much better to arrive early at the venue for the job interview than to appear dashing in minutes past the set time. It is totally wrong for your interviewers to be waiting for you, and creates a terrible impression about you.

It also leaves you feeling frazzled and uncoordinated.

It can be really awkward if you show up at a job interview overdressed or underdressed. Hence, ensure to dress in neutral coloured clothes and avoid bright, blinding colours.
