If you’ve ever looked for a job—and please introduce me to the lucky person who hasn’t—you know that the process can be both exciting and exhausting, exhilarating and exasperating. It’s a roller coaster of joyous highs (“They’re bringing me back in!”) and stomach-churning lows (“What did I just say?”).

This can take its toll even if you’re only pursuing one opportunity. If you’ve got several on the table, you can bet 100% you’re going to feel wrung out.
