Going to an interview is extremely nerve-wracking. We all know the many thoughts that run through our minds those minutes before walking through the door or picking up that phone call to answer five to ten of potentially, the most important questions that you will answer in your career, up to this point. Stress and nerves are good for some people and allow them to handle interviews like a pro, but for some, these nerves can totally take over their thoughts and control the way they perform.

P.S. Immediately following the interview, write your interviewers a handwritten thank you note and get it in the mail that day!

A handwritten letter is a great gesture and stands out among the hundreds of e-mails.
