Be Prepared

The second interview is generally conducted at the company ­office, and you may need to arrange for travel and boarding yourself, though some companies will offer to arrange it for you or they may refund the expense borne by you. When you go, be sure to gather the following information and materials:
  • If arrangements are carried out by an executive then his or her name, title, business address and phone number should be with you.
  • If the company has outsourced arrangements of your travel to a travel agency, then get details of whoever is co-ordinating your trip/travel arrangements.
  • Get complete details about your travel and accommodation arrangements, including dates, time, locations and appropriate phone numbers. If you will be staying at a hotel, ask the trip co-ordinator whose name your room is in.
  • Gather/carry all necessary documents/paperwork (travel tickets, hotel reservation, cab-pickups, car rental slip, etc.).
  • Make a schedule or brief itinerary indicating where you are supposed to be at a particular time and the people you are to contact.
  • Most companies pay for all the expenses related to a candidate’s visit, so don’t hesitate to inquire about pre-payment or reimbursement. Clarify beforehand information on what ­expenses will be refunded by the employer and how. Also ask for the paperwork you need to submit (tickets/­reservation slips/boarding passes, etc.) and people you should submit it to for reimbursement. Conversely, don’t take advantage of the employer. The expenses you ask to be reimbursed for, should be legitimate, in cash or cheque, and not souvenirs and the like.

Don’t Forget to Follow Up

Be sure to send a thank you note to every person who met with you. Keep the note brief, but reiterate your interest in the position, if that is the case. Even if you decide not to pursue the job, let the people who interviewed you, know that you appreciated their hospitality and consideration.
