You’ve bagged the interview for the job of your dreams. Now all you have to do is nail it. Easy, right? Not for everyone.
If you find it difficult to get yourself across the way you want, here are some tips that might help you:
If you feel comfortable, you’ll act comfortable
We all want to look the part for an interview. But if heels and a trouser suit just aren’t you, you won’t feel at ease. Wear something smart and comfy – here are some perfect ideas for you!
Prepare but don’t overthink
There’s a difference between preparing for an interview and overthinking an interview. If you have bagged the interview, you already have the qualification necessary for the job. Now, all you have to do is research the company and the role and come up with why you are the best person for the job. When it’s downtime, don’t think about the interview, you’ll get nervous and flustered and by the time D-day comes, you'll be a wreck.
Slow and steady wins the race
You don’t have to go in there and talk as fast as you can. That’s what a nervous person does You’re not nervous, remember? Take things steady and slowly and think things through before answering. If you are someone who gets that shaky, dry voice when you’re nervous, ask for a glass of water you can sip when you need to.
If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times. But there’s a reason for that! Don’t be afraid to show off your personality. Employers are much more likely to remember you if you show who you are rather than a stiff, question-answering robot.
