Why Being Late to IT Job Interviews is a Big Deal

Most IT professionals have been warned by their IT recruiters and IT staffing firms to never ever be late for interviews for IT jobs.  Unfortunately, being late usually means you’ll never get the job, nor will you win points with your IT staffing companies and technical recruiters.  Most people don’t know why being late to an IT job interview is such a problem, though.

The main reason it’s not ok to be late is that there isn’t really a good reason for it anymore.  Between smartphones, GPS, and of course your IT recruiting companies, you should be able to get good directions to your interview.  If you don’t take the time to consult any of these sources and get lost, then you’ll look particularly unprepared and not resourceful or good at problem-solving.  None of these are qualities you want attached to your name. So do what you have to do to make sure you’re 5 minutes early to all interviews.  It’s not even worth going if you don’t.
