Geez OP...calm yourself. You got rejected by two of the most powerful and competitive companies in the world? Where 1 in 150 get hired? Good luck with your paper cut...

I need some advice. I have an interview coming up Thursday and I’m having a big case of imposter syndrome. I always struggle with this at work, even with 4 years of experience. And it gives me so much anxiety because I feel like I won’t know what I’m talking about and they’ll think I’m unqualified. Unsure how to fight the feeling because it’s all I can think about before the interview :(

If you're putting away a good amount to your 401k there is a solid chance you will have a mil in it when all said and done. Pro's to having so much of your assets tied up like this?
