Interview season is finally coming to a close for me. For many, this can be an exhausting time, and it really takes a toll on your budget, but we all have to do it at some point.
One of the best pieces of advice I can pass along to any interviewer is to stay organized. Make sure that you’re keeping your own personal calendar because you will feel bombarded with offers, and you want to make sure you’re not interviewing in California one day, and then New York the next day. Also, when offered an interview it is very important to respond as soon as possible. The number of interview spots available is less than the amount of interviews offered, so you want to make you’re not wait listed because you didn’t respond quickly enough. Finally, make sure you’re schedule for semi-relaxed rotations during this time because you will need to request a significant amount of time off. You do not want to be in a rotation where you’re auditioning during this time as you will be absent during a portion of the rotation. Make sure that you offer to make up missed days if you can, this will leave a lasting positive impression on your colleagues.
Good luck on the interview trail!
