Having just been through the entire EY interview process (decision pending) I am ACUTELY aware that I need to get my nerves under control. Anyone else in the same boat? Anyone found a way to shore?
After thinking about it a bit, I got this:
Experience - I’ve done 3 proper interviews so far and have obviously got better - but not much!
Preparing answers - if I didn’t have almost everything I said planned out in advance, I would have gone to pieces much quicker.
Looking good - wearing a new suit helped, but knowing that I had done an awful job of ironing it gnawed at my nerves.
Talking to receptionists/other employees before the interview - the worst of my 3 interviews was the one where I spoke to no one in the hours leading up to it.
Having a drink of water - no use. Shaky hands spill it everywhere.
Thoughts, please? Any outside-the-box ideas? I think quite a few people will find this useful.
