I usually have a bullet list of what I want to ask, reminders of things I'd like to comment on (on the business, yourself, the janitor...whatever), a menu for the local chinese takeout, and that day's NYT crossword.
great post Z and very helpful and bang on in my opnion.
I never really ever considered bring notes or a notebook in...not sure if I've ever seen that either.
Anyone else that has interviewed or been interviewed recently done or seen this?
I ask because I have a whole bunch of talking points and notes for myself for tomorrow more so because I know I'll be nervous and bouncing all over the place so I thought making some notes and some specific topics or examples I would like to use before hand would be useful. I never considered bringing them in with me though! Nice one
I've never interviewed without a notebook, or now a tablet.
Different fields have different interview types. I'm pretty sure my last interview was 90% different than most normal interviews, they tend to almost be another version of your thesis defense. And that doesn't even include the casting couch.
