"If you have to interview, then spend a week learning the technical waffle and interview shit, then hope you really dont need it."
I love this advice so much. In fact, this whole comment is brilliant. Thank you so much. :)

Interviewing is a skill you can cram for. The worst thing you can do is turn up to a dream job interview having not just been to a few other interviews to find your narrative and get warmed up. When I am looking for new roles I deliberately say yes to the first call to interview simply to practice even if the role looks far less than ideal. One day that might turn up a great role by pure luck but it always has me come out of the first interview thinking ”I am so rusty at this why didn't I say X and Y?”. I always feel more relaxed and better able to articulate my latest skills and experience at the next interview.
