2 weeks ago an offer I had got rescinded. That was the only offer I had. In the few past days, I have started frantically interviewing anywhere and everywhere.
I have a h1b visa deadline in early March, which makes me very nervous. In recent interviews, I have gotten super nervous. As the stakes are so high if I fail.
This anxiety is not good in interviews, I need to avoid it. Have you been in similar situation before? How did you deal with it?
Also, take your time before answering the question, gather your thoughts ask clarifying questions and give yourself time to shine. Don't rush your answers. Your anxiety will make you feel like you have to get the answers out right away and you are more likely to trip over your tongue and get more tied up in knots. So breathe, take your time and if necessary, ask the interviewer to clarify the question.
Also in the time when you are being escorted to the room, if the interviewer makes small talk, join in, laugh try to break the ice a little bit as it gets rid of nervous energy.
Another thing people practice lc a lot but don't really practice articulating their ideas out loud at a whiteboard/screen, and get stuck in their heads. Try not to let it get too quiet. Even if you just say what you are thinking out loud don't just fall silent because interviewer can help out with prompts if necessary but can't do anything if you go quiet.
