@ToTheRiot:  You should definitely dress professionally. If you can’t go out and buy a suit, I would at least buy some dark dress pants and a professional looking shirt (button down, etc.). Also, bring a couple copies of your resume and the references. 

Good luck! 🙂

@ToTheRiot:  definitely go buy some slacks, a typical interview attire consists of a clean black suit and non busy blouse. with that said, you  can get by with dark colored slacks and a nice blouse with a blazer if you dont have a suit. showing up in jeans, even if they are black to an interview isnt professional. also, take your reference contact information and a resume… lastly look up some information on the company so you can be prepared to ask them questions at the end. most companies like when you ask questions, it shows that you are genuinely interested. good luck !! & breathe !!

Take some Emergen-C!! It really does help when you feel a cold coming on!

Be sure to dress professionally – prefereably a suit, but if not, solid color skirt or nice pants, nice top, and blazer-ish jacket.  (just re-read your post – yes, I’d make the effort to go out and try to find some if possible).

Make sure you highlight your past experience in the position, no matter how limited, and also focus on other applicable skills – are you organized? a fast typer? good at multitasking? a people-person?

Also make sure you have questions prepared – they always ask for them at the end of an interview and they really don’t like if you don’t have any.

I’d be sure to print your resume and maybe a list of references.  They wouldn’t think to tell you to bring a resume, since it’s completely standard.

Don’t be too nervous! Try to relax.  Be confident.  It sounds like they really need someone, given the quick turnaround time, so that’s a good sign.

@ToTheRiot:  I’d still run to Walmart and see if you can find anything.

And yes, they have your resume, but still bring copies.  Sometimes they don’t print them, sometimes you interview with multiple people and only one has as copy,… and even if they do, asking them if they need a copy shows that you showed up prepared.
