    I'm going into an interview/meeting type thing with the Technical Director of my college. I'm looking to be a stage hand/tech at the school theatre. So far I've thought of a copy of my resumé, typical week schedule, and a pen and a pad of paper to take some notes with. Can anyone give advice on what else to bring / what do do during the interview?

    Would your name be on any previous plays booklet thingy? Maybe keep one or two handy.

    Turn off your cellphone, very important.

    All that I can think of, I am a corporate guy. :eek:

    definitely bring... Pants.


    but seriously, I interview a lot of people. Just bring your self confidence. Don't memorize and recite facts. Make them know that you can think on your feet.

    also, be sure that you are well rested ... if you go in looking and feeling drained, it can affect their decision. be sure not to be sugar coaty

    Confidence.

    Oh, and questions. When they ask if you have any questions, be sure you have 2 or 3 you can ask. "When will you come to a decision?" is always a good one, as is "What is an average day/week like?" Show that you're interested. Granted, you'll want to phrase them better than I did here, but you get the idea. Good luck! :)

    If you have previous experience

    You may want to take some artifacts(pictures, videos, drawings, whatever) of those experiences with you, but honestly I doubt it would come up. Like everyone else has said, be confident and keep it simple.

    If they REALLY wanted you to bring something, they would have told you about it when they scheduled the interview.
