I get that there really isn’t any alternative but I have a technical interview coming up and I can’t stop obsessing about it. I have to give a 45 minute presentation and then 4 technical interviews follow and a lunch interview. I’m dreading it like I’ve dreaded few things before. I don’t even need the job that badly. But I’ve had my share of semi traumatic technical interviews that I can’t handle them.
As soon as anything goes wrong, like my code has a bug or I’m not clicking with the interviewer, I freeze and can barely think anymore. I imagine it’s like a panic attack that some people feel, but I don’t get them outside of these damn interviews.
I would just cancel, but I don’t want to start a trend. If there comes a time I do really need to switch jobs, I don’t want my aversion to be any worse.
Ah well. this time next week it will be over.
