I am a recent graduate. I have been going to a lot of interviews lately (software development), and I've noticed that interviewers rarely give you a specific date they want to arrange the interview on (unless it's an assessment day). This gives me two options:
- Request an interview at a specific date - appearing more dominant.
- Say something like "Any time next week is fine, I'm happy to work around your schedule" - appear more flexible.
Both stances could be seen as positive or negative, but which would be considered a better general approach and why?
