Would you interview before or after a long weekend?

Sup Savages! hope everyone is having a money monday ๐Ÿค‘

I am in the middle of this interview process trying to schedule time with the HM for a back filled Expansion role at a Saas org. I only wfh Mondays and Fridays so my options are limited. 1) I either wait to schedule the interview for next week after the weekend which would put me further out the process. Or 2) I can get ahead and interview this Thursday but then I have to wait another week and however, many other candidates they are interviewing.

Their offices are closed Friday and Monday for Presidents' Day.

As difficult as jobhunting is right now, I've noticed that you are usually more succes
sful the earlier in the process you start with a company. Anyone else experience something similar?

what to do... ๐Ÿค” pls help ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

UPDATE: interview is scheduled for Thursday so wish me luck! ๐Ÿค‘

Go before and be done, procrastinating in job hunt doesnโ€™t always look good.

And youโ€™ll be able to enjoy your long weekend as well, instead of worrying about โ€œhow will the interview go?โ€

Give your best and let the management(fate) decide.

I would ask them - "I WFH on Mondays and Fridays. Knowing that, what's best for your teams schedule?"

Must be nice to get a 4 day weekend for P-day.

Snagged my recent role right before my vacation and felt WAYYYY better. Thought about putting it off when I got back but Iโ€™m so glad I didnโ€™t. Really put my mental at ease

Before so you can enjoy the long weekend not worrying about the interview and you're keeping the momentum going.

Agreed, the momentum is key I think. Im not even getting a long weekend anyway so had to think this through and how it would look to the employer.
