I’d advise against interviewing at your dream job without having a few mock or real interviews under your belt. The nervousness can be incredibly overwhelming, and it can only be dulled through practice.
I just got a developer job at Facebook. Here’s how I prepped for my interviews.

This is so true. If you haven’t interviewed in a while (or ever) only sitting through a number of interviews can give you the mindset to control the room.

I liken my recent interview experiences to Red’s periodic parole hearings in The Shawshank Redemption. After so many interviews Red is just tired of hearing the same questions and getting the same rejection. Finally he tells the truth.

“So you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don’t give a shit.”

Interview experience will help shed the nerves that can hide the real you, and the real you might just be a better candidate.
