Job Interview Preparation Tips

The night before an important job interview can be one of the most tense and sleepless nights in a person’s entire life. Interview preparation is valuable, of course, and it’s never a bad idea to prepare your answers beforehand and practice your “elevator pitch” until you know every word by heart. But no amount of practice will do the trick if you let your nerves get the best of you and you stumble into your interview on zero sleep. Here are a few ways to hit the off switch and enjoy eight hours of pleasant dreams before you get up and (hopefully!) step into the next chapter of your working life.

If you’re having trouble getting your employees to show up on time, start meetings on schedule, and stay in the office until the work is done, these tips can help.
