  How to Properly Schedule an Interview  
 
When you call to schedule an interview on your own, it is important to remember that there are likely to be others that also want to schedule interviews. Although it is more common for an employer to call applicants in which they are interested, some companies still publish advertisements in the newspaper and ask those who are interested to call to set up an interview. Although you may want to schedule something that is convenient for you, that may not meet with the schedule of the company. If you are interested in securing employment or new employment, you have to be willing to compromise.

When you call to schedule an interview, you have to be willing to take some unpaid time from your current job. Although this may not always be necessary, there are times you may have no other choice. For example, if the company is only interviewing this week, and there is only one slot left, you have to decide how important it is for you to secure an interview for that position. If you do not want your current employer to know you are looking for something else, you may have to think of an excuse or just state you have some personal business to which you must attend rather than lie about why you need the time off. In these cases, you are usually pretty informed about the time—if the schedule runs for an hour, you can be sure your interview will be within that period.

Choose times that are convenient for you and the company and ones that you will not have to change for anything other than an emergency. It is not good interview practice to schedule tentative times for interviews unless it is at the discretion of the interviewer. Sometimes they will make allowances for some who will not show up—maybe because they didn’t appear to be really interested and were just going through the motions—so they will fit someone else in tentatively in case that should happen. They may also be unsure of how long an interview will take and will over schedule just to be sure that they can see enough people for the position. You, on the other hand, must be more firm when you make your interviews and be careful not to allow less time than you actually need.
