You’ve got an in-person interview scheduled. Congratulations! It’s high stakes, possibly your only opportunity to get the job you’ve been seeking. But interviewing is not your strong suit.
What do you say, dear (to quote my favorite Maurice Sendak book of the same title).

To follow Sendak’s advice, be polite and say thank you. But, since you don’t want to extricate yourself from the bears’ den but rather be invited to stay, here’s how to prepare.
