Welcome to Part 2 of the Interview Game Plan Preparation! If you’ve missed what you should do during the first five months, make sure to read Part 1 here.
The first 5 months of your interview prep were all about building a sound foundation, so the last few weeks before interviews begin are mostly about fine-tuning that foundation in the wake of mounting pressure and limited time.
This time around, we’ll turn our attention to what you need to do 2 weeks before interviews, 1 week before interviews, and then go down to days, hours, and minutes before interviews.
In this article, you’ll learn:
- How to find “insider information” (the legal kind) on specific companies and use that to gain a big leg-up in interviews
- How you can anticipate and prepare for specific questions in advance
- What you should avoid doing in the 48 hours to 24 hours before an interview… that other people sometimes claim is a good idea
- How to build your confidence right before the interview
