This week's question: "Should I bring anything with me to my interview?"

Answer: It is always a good idea to bring along extra copies of your resume to provide for your interviewer. The individual interviewing you may not have had time to print out your resume, so having one on hand will make you appear organized and prepared. Having an extra copy for personal reference can also be of use during an interview. Consider writing down key words or phrases next to your experiences to help jog your memory of key skills you want to highlight.
