You need to put your best foot forward when being interviewed for a job, so it's a good idea to give yourself extra time to get ready. You'll look your best and be capable of handling any emergencies that pop up.

Sarah Strambouli, career coach and head of Strambouli Consulting, suggests you give yourself an extra hour of time to get ready for your job interview. This gives you extra time to make sure you're dressed sharp, your hair looks nice, your makeup is on point, and you're presenting the neatest version of yourself. Take your time and don't rush yourself. Maybe listen to some music to pump yourself up, or go over your answers to some of the questions you'll probably be asked. This also gives you time make fixes if something goes wrong. You can iron your shirt if it got wrinkled, or think of a clever way to hide or remove a stain in your jacket. The more confident you feel in the way you look, the more that will shine through in your interview and the more comfortable you'll feel.
