You want the job, but inside your head there’s a war going on. There’s one voice that says, “Of course you’re going to get it. You’re so skilled, you’ve got a great resume and you’ve been born for this job” Another voice says, “Who do you think you’re kidding? There are those who are much younger, more intelligent, have better connections and better resumes”
So, what can you do in such a situation? To stop unwanted thoughts coming into your mind, you should follow the below steps.
Try not to force a lot of thoughts into your mind and don’t engage in any last minute preparation in the night before your interview as it can disrupt your sleep. You should relax before bedtime to ensure you get a good sleep so that you can fire on all your cylinders the next morning.
Enjoy a healthy meal
Fuel yourself with healthy food before going for an interview. Try to consume something healthy such as porridge or whole meal sandwiches which will keep you full and energized throughout the day. Try to avoid alcohol at all costs before going for an interview.
Stay calm and confident
Hold on your nerves and try to stay calm and confident. Take deep breaths and fuel your mind with positive thoughts. If you have done enough research then you have nothing to worry about.
Warm up your brain
A little review can be helpful before going for the interview. Review everything you have studied and researched beforehand to keep it fresh in your mind. But do not engage in last minute cramming as you are unlikely to remember every piece of information you cram in such a short period of time.
Don’t forget printouts
Always remember to keep printouts of your CV, educational certificates or any other supporting information. Also keep a notebook or a diary in case you need to write something down.
Make sure you dress properly for the job interview. You should look professional. Try to check out the LinkedIn accounts of the company’s employees to get an idea about how they dress. Dressing appropriately helps you to minimize distraction and also leaves a good impression in the interview.( Graduation Gifts From Grandparents )
