You'll ultimately need to figure out how to both psych yourself up before an interview, but also not overdo it. For some people that's breathing (meditation), others it is a simple warmup exercise with a friend or family member. You might look in a mirror and say "you got this". I find confidence for most is being in the mindset that it's just any other conversation about work. You have them all the time, so why would this be any different? Another thing that helps me is that I'm not the one being interviewed, they are the ones. I can pick from any place and likely get the job. They need to prove they are the place for me. Don't be an ass during the interview, but they need you, more than you need them. Find out if the fit is mutual.

There are many websites that provide commonly asked interview questions. You can also look on Glassdoor to see if others have posted interview questions from the specific company. If I were you, I would download a couple of those and come up with answers to those question. This will do a few things...

(1) You will realize you do have good answers to these questions. It will help build your confidence.

(2) You won't have to think about finding a way to answer these questions in the interview because you've already considered how to answer them. You will look more confident and able to think on your feet.

(3) Even if they ask you different questions, the exercise will better prepare you answer other questions, especially if they are somewhat related. You will be better prepared.

What kind of prep do you do? I have a worksheet if you're interested.

A recruiter advised me to ask early in the interview what part of your application caught their eye. That gives you a quality to emphasize and circle back to.

Also remind yourself, if you got an interview, you've probably already beat 95%+ of the other applicants.

I look through my resume and pull milestones or successes and write them all out in list form, particularly ones that are applicable to the new position. Additionally, I look at the required/preferred qualifications and make bullet notes of example experiences for each one. I take these notes with me to the interview.

It's OK to have an imposter syndrome, the best and highly successful people also have it. Just try and make sure it's not reflected in your interview and don't worry too much about it.

I've personally learn how to coexist with imposter syndrome. I keep myself engaged in things I as very bad at (coding, or playing guitar) so it's easy to realize how good I am at other things. It has worked as mental preparation for interviews, so far.

It’s an interview both ways. You are interviewing them as well and the market is competitive for talented people like yourself! Don’t forget, it’s a candidates market out there currently! You may not know the answer to every question which is okay - have relatable examples ready of something similar.

Among the comments were, “the person needs to help show Sr. Management the FP&A dept is important and brings value.” “I’m going to be honest, we have other candidates for this position, you need to bring your game to the second interview”. The rest of the interview was describing their problems as a dept and then proceeds to ask if I can handle it. How can I respectfully decline?

Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO.

My manager is not aware of my adhd and I have crippling fear and shame around it so I'd rather not tell him. The office environment I'm in is honestly any neuroduvergent's nightmare. I know it's probably wrong to not tell him but I don't want any judgement.

New at a job. During interview, I was clear on my desire to move from doing work representing individuals to businesses. I took the job even though there was a chance to work on cases representing individuals. I was hoping it would be an opportunity to gain experience on doing work for businesses. I suspect that my employer is trying to pigeonhole me based on comments and actions. How do I avoid this? I want to have some control of my career. I left my job because I was done w/representing ppl.

I'm coming to the end of a contract term and being converted to FTE.

The offer was presented to me by the hiring manager and not HR/Recruiter. To me it is a lower base salary offer than expected, so I asked for info on the total compensation package (base, benefits, bonus, stock/rsu, etc.), which I was told about when they took me on under the contract with the intention to convert.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?
