Is it inappropriate to bring a small gift? I am a re-applicant interviewing with the same adcom officer as last year and she mentioned that she could use some of the products that my company sells. I can get sample products for a negligible price.

Do you think that a small gift could be misconstrued as being inappropriate?


If you work at Victoria's Secret, umm probably a bad idea. It could be appropriate, but depending on the gift. I would maybe go the route of a gift that adds humor to the situation as opposed to a gift that is more serious in nature.

It's an artwork print reproduction. Although lingerie could make for a very unique story and it would probably make me a memorable candidate.

Umm...I wouldn't. I would probably mention it to show a little humor and that you remembered. For example, if it's a Monet reproduction. I almost brought the Monet reproduction that you asked for last time, but I'm working on sending you the original. That's just me. Of course, it depends on the person. A more serious person would probably find that dumb.

In addition to a portfolio/padfolio containing extra copies of my resume, business cards, etc., I also bring a bottle of water as well. Talking about yourself for upwards of an hour straight invariably dries out your mouth and it's nice to have water with you.
