Be prepared for the unexpected…

This is from personal experience.  I was unexpectedly stranded in Houston-mechanical problems with plane…no luggage-had to stay overnight-airline put me up-but, I got to thinking-what if I had an interview the next day??

So, for those job seekers who ever travel for an interview, here’s some pointers I knew, but forgot!
1. Always pack a change of undies in your carry-on, a toothbrush and toothpaste also go in there.

2. In this age of cellphones-put the cellphone charger in that carry-on as well.      

3. A change of clothes would be just great!

I try to travel light so, extra clothes wasn’t an option!

You should call the company you have the interview with ASAP-hey, it’s not your fault-no one can blame you…it just is!

If you can swing it and have time to get another outfit- go to Walmart or find a good sale, go for it…If not, go to hotel, take a shower,  shave, for the guys, if can, -be as presentable as possible…

Hey, sadly, most people (employers, too) have had some time like this one, and should understand!
It may even "break the ice" & build rapport faster…and, that’s what you want!  It’s how you handle this situation that shows "grace under pressure", flexibility, sense of humor, and your humanity.  Don’t sweat it!
Love to hear if you have had any experiences like this.

In Abundance!
