Your knowledge and experience play a crucial role in a job interview. But besides obvious things, there are some unusual circumstances that can influence the outcome. If you know all these nuances, it’d be easier to make an impression as a qualified candidate and would increase your chances of getting the job.
Amazing Things on Earth made a list of the most non-obvious things that the result of your job interview may really depend on.
10. The weather on the day of your interview
There are studies that prove weather can affect the results of important events. It influences both us and recruiters. There are people whose mental or emotional state depends on the weather, so if it’s rainy, they can be less attentive and even irritated. People who undergo interviews during a dull, rainy day get worse results than those who are interviewed when it’s sunny out. If possible, it’s better to arrange a job interview when you know the weather’s going to be good.
9. How early you arrive for an interview
Experts say that arriving earlier is a good idea but if you come too early, you decrease your chances of getting the job. A recruiter may think that you feel too nervous or are trying to put pressure on them. So it’s recommended to come 10-15 minutes before an interview. If you do happen to come even earlier, you can wait outside or inside your car.
