I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I don’t think I’ll be ready or have enough time to prepare.

Should I email the hiring team and ask to reschedule or just not sleep this week so I can fully prepare?

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about.

Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

I’m feeling super discouraged. Why bother with my resume at all?
