You only need to do 2 or 3 practice interviews before the real deal. IMO practicing too much will make your answers sound inorganic

I’ve found that if you practice enough without memorizing whole expressions (just knowing short bullets) you can get over that hump because you’re never using the same wording during practice and you internalize the info instead. You get to sound much more comfortable and conversational, but you need to “learn it, then forget it” first, if that makes sense.

I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
