                                           On the other hand, if you believe, “There’s no way I’ll ever be considered for this

                                                 The very best way to mentally prepare yourself for an interview is to view the

                                           you’ve had one more opportunity to practice and refine your interview techniques.
                                                 By managing your expectations, you’ll be able to participate in the interview
                                           process more personably, because you’ll be more relaxed and natural. It’s unlikely
                                           you’ll ever be able to completely eliminate all of your interview jitters. But, you can
                                           manage to put them to work for you rather than against you. ❖
