“Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.”—Johanna de Silentio
“When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.”—Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron
“It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — celebrate your struggle.”—Neale Donald Walsch

Do your homework by reading up on the company’s history and mission statement, and keep a running list of questions you’d like to ask your interviewer as you go.
Update your resume.
Double check that your resume is up to date, and make sure it looks clean and tidy. I recommend printing at least three copies on linen resume paper. Using thick, expensive paper will leave a lasting impression on the company, and it will make your resume feel important.
