The job interviews can be stressful for one. One will have to make the necessary mindset adjustment in order to be zen during the course of the entire process. The best approach is to interview and forget about it. The “forget” refers to ignoring the outcome of the interview which is beyond the control of one. It makes more sense for one to focus on the other job applications and prepare for the interview when scheduled.
These were the approach which I adopted during the course of the full-time employment. Such approach has aided me well and gave me the peace of mind. It makes the icing of the cake if I decide to apply for the full-time employment at this juncture given that I know that I do not have to depend on the full-time employment as I rely on the generated dividend from the investment portfolio to cover the annual expense. In event if I manage to secure the full-time employment, the 100% income from the full-time employment will be channelled into the investment portfolio which will be equipped to produce more dividends to cover the annual expense. The excess dividend (after offsetting the annual expense) can be channelled into the investment portfolio and this will result in more generated dividends.
