So you've planned your interview questions and answers and now it's time to relax and reset the night before your interview.

Here are some mindest tactics from our doctor interview guide.

1. Have a positive mindset

A positive mindset has many benefits including lower stress levels and more energy - both of which are helpful for a job interview. It also means that you have optimistic expectations about outcomes and imagine yourself succeeding. Having this outlook will give you more courage to succeed and manifest your desired outcome.

2. Study, study, study

Research the hospital or practice you are applying to. Pay close attention to any ideologies, culture, or mission they may have so you can explain how you complement this. Looking into the key players in the organisation and your interviewer is also a good idea.

3. Don't be a stranger

Reach out to your recruiter and ask any questions that you have. We are always happy to help our doctors before their interviews. It is likely that your dedicated Solution Specialists has worked with many other doctors applying for similar roles or in similar situations and they are there to guide you every step of the way

4. Clear your mind

Go for a run or a walk, or do something you love like art or cooking to make sure you have a clear mind for the next day. Mental clarity will help you answer tomorrow's questions with ease and without overthinking.

5. Rationalise your fears

Remember that your interviewer is just another person, looking your interviewer up is a great way to confirm this and also get to know them a bit in advance.

Remember, the evening before your interview is the time for you to wind down and relax your mind. You’ve done all you can by way of interview preparation, so now you need to ensure you go into the interview tomorrow with a fresh mind.
