  • First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    suggestions or tips? Many thanks!

    • Hey there, great question, here are 2 tips I like to use:
      1. When getting stuck just reread everything the interviewer has said to you from the moment it started what your entire thought process (the solutions you have thought of) is until the moment you got stuck.
      2. Ask for a hint gently, “so I went throughout all the process but I am still stuck here… am I completely off track here or am I completely off?”

      These 2 tips helped me a lot to reduce my anxiety & improved my interviewing experience.
