Avoid Caffeine Before Interviews for Better Composure

While you may need your caffeine fix on most occasions, avoid coffee or any other drink with it before your next interview. Your adrenaline doesn't need that jolt, and it will likely harm it instead, says Desha Peacock, director of career development at Marlboro College in Marlboro, Vt.

Avoid drinking caffeine before an interview to help prevent the 'sweaty palm syndrome'. Caffeine is anxiety inducing and can make you seem too chatty. Lay off the coffee before you head in for an interview.

The advice seems in line with what caffeine does to your brain. Instead, it might be best to have some green tea, since it has been shown to reduce levels of psychological stress.
