1/5. Arriving late to the job interview or not showing up.
There are many reasons that could cause you to be late for an interview such as traffic, a delayed flight, a lost taxi driver, just running late, or coming on the wrong day. Try at all costs to arrive early, confirm the date and time for your interview, and leave enough time to get to the interview in time.
When you realize that you will be late for your interview, what should you do?
Get there as soon as possible and explain why you are late.
Immediately call to explain the situation, apologize, and ask if the interviewer can still talk to you, or offer to reschedule the interview.
Go home and call the next day to explain what happened and try to reschedule the interview.
