Job interviews can be stressful enough, but what about interviews that require you to travel? This is a whole different ball game. Traveling to meet with an employer is not a vacation, and you don’t want to pack on any extra stress in addition to your interview. The trick is to be prepared for the interview, and not have to worry about the travel portion at all. Traveling is stressful enough, but you don’t want to stress over traveling AND the interview. There are a few organizational things you can do to alleviate the stresses of traveling so that you can focus solely on the interview. Here are some tips:
1. Know where you are going: Your flight and hotel room will likely be set up for you, but you should not use your potential employer as a travel guide. Candidates should not ask questions on how to get to and from an interview. You should already be prepared for this. Way beforehand, figure out how to get from the airport to the hotel to the company’s building. Ask your hotel about transportation options. Research and organize these things well ahead of time, and you will be fine.
