    Default Face to face interviews

    I have an interview coming up, so far it looks like a face to face meeting , So how should I prepare?
    I could wear a simple face mask, or would a surgical mask be better. I did try their HR
    department , but they could not help, i will ask the agent, but any ideas

    why not ask if you could do the 'face to face' on SKYPE or something? Its not that you are going to shake their hands.

    Well, you'll only be wearing a mask to protect them, so if they're not bothered, it's their call. You could ask whether the interviewers will wear masks to protect you. Or whether the interview will be carried out with a 2m distance in a properly sanitised room.

    Or just turn up in a spacesuit with your own air.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    Honestly, if you're that paranoid then you should probably cancel the interview and just stay at home, alone, for the rest of your life.
    If you don't have anything nice to say, say it sarcastically

    Loads seem to be doing it over Teams or similar these days, ask for that. Or take the risk and sit at the far end of the room!
