Things to do on the morning of your interview.

Here are a list of things to do to get yourself in the appropriate mood. It will help you come to a calm state of mind, feel confident in yourself and be adequately prepped to face your interviewer for better chances to score that job or scholarship.

On the morning of your interview, do this:



Wake Up early

Punctuality is key so as soon as your alarm rings wake up, do not succumb to the snooze button. Doing this will give you more than enough time to prepare and tackle any problems/emergencies that may arise.


Recite your favorite affirmations

It is very normal to be nervous on the morning of your interview so take some time off before starting your day to remind yourself of how amazing you are. 


Eat a healthy breakfast

Try having a nutritious meal that will boost your energy and sharpness. You don’t want to look and feel tired during your interview.


Dress comfortably

Your nerves will already be through the roof so the last thing you want to do is add discomfort to the list. Pick an outfit that you'll feel confident in hence helping you relax.


Make sure you’ve packed everything you need for the meeting

There's nothing wrong with being too prepared so go through everything you’ve packed and make sure nothings missing. If you already have a list written down this process will be so easy.


Practice out loud

Practicing ahead of time will help you deal with any anxieties that may arise. Role-playing with yourself can be a great way to do this.


Leave early

Being late for an interview is a bad first impression. Leaving early will allow extra time for traffic or any other delays.
