7 interviews in a day - energy/throat issues

Postby MischiefMayhemSoap » Fri Aug 02, 2013 11:35 pm

Not that it's anything too out of the ordinary with schools that have lottery, but it's still daunting. Any tips on getting through a full day of (often) back-to-back interviews? Job interviews in the past have been tiring enough (tired, don't want to talk anymore, etc.) when I was just doing one, can't imagine doing seven...

Callbacks are often around 7 interviews in a single day so you better be ready. But really 7 isn't all that difficult.

You'll be fine. Doing many in one day is good because you learn from the interviews earlier in the day and it your answers just flow better because you literally just said xyz five minutes ago, so your delivery is smoother. And surely you'll get a lunch break, just get a cup of coffee or two to get a boost of energy (but rinse/brush/refresh your breath after).

Doing multiple interviews at the same firm is a different ballgame for a number of reasons.

I fully recommend drinking a huge banana smoothie (maybe with some dates). When I say huge I mean 7+ bananas. Better than coffee. Good luck.
