Primacy and recency: people most remember the first and last things to occur, and barely the middle.
When scheduling an interview, ask what times the employer is interviewing and try to be first or last. This will make sure you catch their attention. This isn’t always the case, however. You can stand out even if you are in the middle. But it’s always good to play it safe in these situations. This is also a great strategy for entertainers who frequently schedule auditions.
