My favorite interview tip

I think interviews can be extremely uncomfortable and sometimes, even a little scary. I get all squirmy the night before and start having overwhelming feelings of dread. Usually, within the first couple of minutes of the meeting, I get into a groove and calm down, but the anticipation (What will they ask? Am I prepared? What about this outfit?) plagues me up until the very last minute.

Drew is a lifesaver in these situations. He is an absolute expert with practice questions, and he always sends me pump-up emails fifteen minutes before my interview. His very best advice? To recite three simple phrases as I walk in the front door: Be cool. Be confident. You’re qualified. It’s amazing how much that can calm me down and get me in The Zone.

What about you? What’s your favorite interview tip?
