When it comes to getting a job, nothing is more important than the job interview. You may have the most brilliant resume out there and be more than qualified for the position and still note get the job if you fail at the simple task of prepping for your job interview. There is a lost art to the interviewing process. It used to be that people took classes on this very subject as they went through their schooling. Since their is a very good chance that you never had the chance to take this type of course, it is time to learn some new skills. It is time to learn how to ace a job interview.
Step One
Schedule your interview for the time of day that works best for you. Many people like to let the interviewer set the time of the appointment so that they look better. This will not help you in the least. If you are a morning person, then go ahead and have a job interview for first thing in the morning. However, if you are not at your best until after the lunch, you had better schedule your appointment for after lunch.
Step Two
Research the company that you will be going for a job interview with. This is done for a number of reasons. You want to make sure that this is a stable company and one that you would want to work for. The most important reason to do research is to be informed able to speak about the company and what it does when you are sitting in the job interview. The last thing that you want to do is to have no idea about who you are talking to.
Step Three
Map out the route that you will take to the place you will be interviewing. It is important to be on time if not early to a job interview. Once you have the way mapped out, make a dry run to the company at the time of day that you will be going to your job interview. This will ensure that you know exactly how long it will take you to get to the company.
This prep work may seem like just extra busy work before you go score that job of your dreams. It is not. This prep work fir a job interview can mean the difference between getting hired and scheduling another interview with another company.

"It is important to be on time if not early to a job interview..." Punctuality is essential... In my opinion, it is best to arrive ten minutes before an interview. :)
