2. Resume and References:
This is your "advertising
material." Bring enough copies so you are certain you won't run
out. Have a neat "package" to hand to
every employer who may be interested in hiring you.
3. Work History:
Occasionally, employers will ask you to fill out a
standard job application as well as taking your resume. Be prepared to
provide all the necessary information on your work history (e.g. names,
addresses, phone numbers, dates, and supervisors from previous employers).
Yes, it seems obvious, but don't overlook
this. How will you be able to make notes or fill out a job application
without a writing utensil? Black ink is preferred, but blue is
acceptable. Pencils are never used for business correspondence.
5. Professional Folder (folio) w/ Paper:
Bring the folder you plan on taking on your
interviews. It will usually be a black, brown, or burgundy vinyl with a
pocket and a paper pad on the inside. Be ready to take notes and collect
information from the employers. The folder is also a good place to stash
the extra copies of your resume.
