    It would depend on the type of job/industry.

    If it's a professional office and you have to take one and you're worried about it, could you ask to leave it with the receptionist/front desk and just take in your CV/pen etc? Or you could take it in and explain that you cycle/go to the gym/whatever and make it a positive and ask about the facilities?

    Good luck!

    A backpack is just about the only bag I own. I catch public transport just about everywhere, so my bag carries a lot of stuff.

    Default Taking a backpack to a job interview?

    For me it depends what the role is to be honest. If it's not a "white collar" or executive role, you're well presented and you don't dump it in the middle of the table and rummage through it mid interview, you're probably going to be ok.
    I was a recruiter pre baby, interviewing a good portion of my day and the only backpacks I remember are the ones that are dumped on the middle of my table and rummaged through for drinks, resumes, certificates etc.
    If it were me I would ask the receptionist if I could possibly leave it with her while I'm waiting in reception.
