Hey – it’s Julie 👋 Are interviews your worst nightmare? Do you feel like your nerves are holding you back?
Well, you’re not alone. Interviews can be an extremely daunting experience.
BUT, there are ways you can calm yourself and come across more confident!
🌟Deep breathing – deep and controlled breathing calms your nervous system. Practise deep breathing before leaving the house, before entering the building, and when you’re in the waiting room.
🌟Smile when speaking – it’s easy for your nerves to kick in and all of a sudden you end up looking like a rabbit in headlights 🐇 But you want to radiate positivity. Smiling when you’re talking is a great way to do that… even if it feels unnatural, you’ll be coming across as confident.
🌟Don’t put all your eggs in one basket – try to schedule several interviews for the same week. This will take the pressure off and help you get into that interviewing flow!
🌟Write down your questions – there’s nothing worse than getting stage-fright and drawing a blank. Before your interview, write your questions down so you can refer to them.
🌟Keep your hands on the table – fidgeting with your hands is a sure sign of nervousness. Keep them on the table to show you have composure.
🌟It’s okay to pass – ever gotten stuck on an interview question? If this happens, it’s okay to ask the interviewer to come back to it later.
