What to bring to an interview | Job Interview Tips Q&A
FOLDERS: There is a significant amount of paperwork you need to bring to a job interview. So you must have a folder where you can store all the documents systematically. This helps to demonstrate your organizational skill. 

RESUME:  You must have already submitted your resume beforehand, but this is unsure that the interviewer is going to carry your resume. Most of the time hiring managers get busy and sometimes forget to print out your resume.  Make sure you have printed 3 extra copies of your resume because you never know how many employees you’re going to be meeting with. 

PORTFOLIO/ WORK SAMPLES : If you are applying for Artist, Designer, Dancer, actor, musician, Facilitator or trainer, Mechanic, Multimedia Specialist, Photographer, Researcher or any other creative industry, then make sure to carry your work samples. But, you need to remember that if you include too many examples, employers may experience information overload.  If you include too few, employers may think you are inexperienced. Keep it simple and showcase only your best. Most of the time, less is more

REFERENCES: References are generally requested and checked after a successful interview and just before offering you a position. References can serve as a final confirmation of your skills, abilities, and verification of positive on-the-job performance. So it is essential to carry out references If the interview goes well and you will be asked for it. So stay prepared. Remember—a reference can be asked about your performance, skills and abilities. They may also be asked about your interpersonal skills, leadership qualities, communication style, conflict resolution capacity, decision-making and whether you have a clear understanding of your field of study or a specific type of work.

PEN and NOTEPAD: There is nothing worse than searching for a pen or asking to borrow a pen, during the interview, so make sure to bring your own.  Also, bring a notepad so you can note down a list of questions for your interviewer, and you will also have a place to job down any thoughts as your discussion progresses. Bringing a pen and notepad shows you came to the interview prepared. 

LIST OF QUESTIONS: Asking good question shows that you are interested and prepared. Try not to ask questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no answer.  A good response to the interviewer asking, "Do you have any questions?" would be: "Yes, I do." It will show the employer you are keen, you’ve thought about the role in detail, and that you’ve gone the extra mile to prepare.
