JOB INTERVIEW NERVES
Every single individual on earth experiences an “attack of the nerves” at some point in their life. Maybe you’re asking someone out on a date, have an important sports game coming up or you may even have a dreaded job interview on the horizon. At a job interview, a sudden attack of nerves or anxiety could potentially lose you the job. However, with simple treatments from me and the Anxiety Hypnosis specialist with The Nexus Team Hypnotherapy in Birmingham and Walsall, you can take control of your anxiety and banish your interview nerves for good.
How can I control my nerves and anxiety during a job interview?
There are also a few practices that you can follow to help control your pre-interview nerves and ensure that your interview goes as smoothly and successfully as possible: STOP your Stressing right now!
This seems like a simple thing to do right? Well, too often than not, job applicants enter the interview with little or no preparation and simply rely on their resume or personality to get them through the interview. This is fine if you are an individual who is full of confidence, but if you are susceptible to bouts of nervousness or anxiety attacks, a lack of preparation could be crucial. Make sure that you have gone through the interview in your head, over and over again for a few days before the interview. Practice the most common interview questions with a friend or family member and polish your answers. You can even practice in your interview clothing to make it seem even more realistic. Do thins with more than one person and even set up 3 or 4 people playing devils advocate. If you know of someone who does interviewing in their job, you may like them to test you out! Practice makes perfect, so to speak…
In the hours leading up to your interview, try to put yourself in a relaxed mood by doing something that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. This could be inviting a friend over for some green tea and chat, having a soothing massage or even listening to your favorite music in the comfort of your own home. Laughter is also a great relaxant, so stick on a funny movie or comedy show to help disperse your nervous thoughts.
Be open and honest…
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to try to cover up your nervousness or anxiety to your potential employer. This can cause you to lose focus in your interview and concentrate more on hiding your emotions than connecting to the interviewer. Remember, it is perfectly normal to be nervous at a job interview and your potential employer will usually understand that this as part of the interview process. At the beginning of the interview you can say “I apologize, I am feeling a little nervous today” or “It has been a while since I was last in this position, I am a little nervous”. This will put both you and the interviewer at ease from the outset and calm your nerves significantly. An expert interviewer will see past you bluffing confidence.
