Yes, an interview is very important. It is often the only way you can get a certain position some times. Everybody prepares for them to the best of their abilities but what do you do a day before the big day?
Get your ducks lined up. Many have a checklist that they go through at least thrice and then cross check that checklist to make sure they did not miss anything. To keep it simple, make a task-wise checklist. From leaving your house to reaching the office and submitting your documents to possibly lunch money for you and your friends if you get the job. Go with the flow of how things would be going on the next day and list them down so you don’t miss anything.
Make sure you have all the correct information about the interview. The time, venue, how you are supposed to get there. You don’t want to worry about all this in case you wake up late. If you are submitting documents or need to present some during the interview, it helps to have a backup copy of everything if something goes awry. Look at the weather forecast if you have a lot of traveling to do to take any delays into account. The key is not to do a lot but to do all that is necessary.
Don’t Freak Out
You may want to practice your salutations and interview skills till the last possible moment. Don’t. You don’t want to freak out and say “Hi, what’s up?” in the end. You need to be calm the night before to get a good night’s sleep. Be confident. You’ve prepared for this for a while now and freaking out by getting insecure one night before is not going to be helping anyone.
It’s important to be calm before any big day. After you’re done getting things ready, just relax. Maybe watch a movie or have dinner with your friends or family. Nothing fancy or tiring. You need to go to bed on time to avoid waking up late tomorrow and messing up your schedule. Try not to eat outside as you don’t want to wake up with an upset stomach. Something light and non-spicy should do the trick. You can celebrate after you get this job.
After doing everything, praying, getting blessed by your elders and/or God, the only thing left to do is to sleep. Keep your phone away and get at least 7 hours of sleep before you have to wake up and get ready for the interview.
Now you are ready for a chance to change your future. What are you waiting for?
