Should I bring my resume along to an interview?

It is entirely up to you.

You may want to have your resume as a form of reference – something that an interviewer can refer to, or if you are interviewed by a panel of interviewers, something that one individual can look at and read while the other interviewer is asking a question.

Even if they say that they have seen your resume, you can always place this beside you if it is not needed.

Sometimes the interviewer/s may forget certain aspects of your experience. They may have overlooked or not even thought about printing a copy of your resume to refer to during the interview. So bringing one or two copies of your resume may work in your favour.

It can also help as a talking point. But again, it is completely up to you. Some may opt not to. Others may decide to bring a thin folio with the CV/resume inside.
