Get a good night of sleep – a day early
Understandably, the night before an interview can be filled with tossing and turning. And while turning off your brain the night before is difficult, giving your body the rest it needs doesn’t have to be. Make sure to get plenty of sleep two nights before the interview to help make up for sleep you might miss out on the eve before an interview.
Eat enough to keep hunger at bay
A grumbling stomach during an interview can be an embarrassing, and unwanted, sideshow. A piece of fruit, energy bar, or something light can keep the growling silent. Don’t eat too much, though – you don’t want to be sluggish during the interview.
Plan your trip
Don’t add to the interview stress by adding getting lost, traffic, or rushing around stress. Plan your trip the night before, or even drive to the interview place a day or two before, so you know where you are going. Be aware of how traffic is flowing – normal or standstill? Remove as many variable as possible to make it smooth sailing.
Schedule an interview for the morning
A little bit of anxiety the night before an interview is expected. No reason to keep the anxiety going all throughout the day as well. A morning interview will get it out of the way, allowing you to spend the rest of the day unwinding. If you have a job currently, take the whole day off if possible. Rushing from job, to interview, and back to the job adds a lot of unnecessary stress.
