Good Luck, Katy! You'll be fine! Double check for toothpaste on your face before you leave the house.

I got a job once and I had toothpaste on my face for the whole interview...I about died when I got home and noticed.

I had my first out-of-grad school interview with the back zipper of my new skirt unzipped! I must have made quite the exit!

So in addition to looking for toothpaste, check your zipper! Good luck, Katy!

Thanks PF!

My suit is freshly pressed and I have a new shirt.

All my paperwork is in order - tomorrow's interview is at a slightly "sensitive" place so they want just about everything except my DNA!

I've done my research, and got all my "ducks in a row". So it's just a case of whether my face fits.

OMG!!!

As if I didn't already have a long enough checklist! (I will be wearing a trouser suit so hopefully any lack of "zippage" will be obvious!)

Don't get me wrong, I am VERY excited. But also on tenterhooks!
For an American, what does 'redundant' refer to? and good luck on both interviews. Hope one of them leads to gainful employment.

Unfortunately, in the majority of professional offices in this country, sandals are not an approved item of shoe wear. No open toes. I guess someone doesn't like looking at ugly toes.
