Looking for a new position is one of the most stressful things you'll ever do. Perhaps it's the high stakes behind the search that makes it easy to over-analyse every part of it, especially when it comes to how you respond to the emails recruiters send. I know that before I became a recruiter, I spent way too long trying to write the perfect responses to every single email I received. They had to be perfect, I thought, because there was a job on the line.

Every part of the interview process can feel tenuous. Here are a few thoughts I've had during interviews which I'm willing to bet have crossed your mind at some point, too: If I wear the wrong outfit to the first interview, I'll get made fun of relentlessly. If I say something stupid during my final interview, the jig will be up -- and nobody will ever hire me. And if my references don't come through with glowing reviews, all the hard work I've done to get to this stage will be wasted.
