    I've had the interview now

    i dont think it would look good but i doubt theyd tell you to put it away.

    Depends what kind of job you're applying for?

    If it's an hourly paid role, e.g. sales assistant, I'd say its unnecessary to use notes, I wouldn't bother.

    If it's a more higher level or salaried role, it's definitely okay to take notes in, along with a copy of your CV. Accompanying notes make you look more organised, professional and prepared, I'd say. And they'll help you with "situational" questions in particular.

    Cv copies yes, notes, I really wouldn't!

    It's not the thing. You are supposed to know what you've done.

    I have taken notes in an iv tho. Got that job!
