A job interview can become a very stressful time for many people. It is not uncommon if we think that we are playing a job or an improvement in our professional career. And it is those nerves that precisely play tricks on us causing sweat, insecurity or stuttering when we face our interviewer. However, there are some techniques that will help us a lot to control the nerves in a job interview.
Steps to follow:
1.The first step in dealing with a good job interview is to be positive. Thinking that we are going to get it and go with a safe attitude, will make our brain receive positive messages that will reinforce our security and poise when talking with our interviewer.
2.Of course one of the keys to go safer to a job interview is to prepare the interviews. Before going, we must investigate the company for which we are applying the work, we must also review our CV and see how we can ‘sell it” better to each interviewer. It is about adapting our profile to the candidacy. Going prepared for the interview will help us to better control our nerves. Forget improvisation because it doesn”t work.
3.If you feel very nervous when starting the interview, you can take an object in your hands such as a pen and try to control your nerves by manipulating it, as well as a notebook. These objects help channel the nerves.
4.Controlling breathing is essential when it comes to controlling nerves. There are yoga or Pilates relaxation techniques that you can use perfectly before an interview. Try to breathe deeply 4 or 5 times, slowly. You will see how controlling breathing improves your control over nerves.
5.Many times our nerves play bad times and there are times when nerves become sweat. If this is your case, it is better to choose breathable, cotton and colored garments that do not sweat. If you are waiting for sweat, you will lose the thread of the conversation.
6.If you notice that you stutter or that words don”t come out, try to speak more slowly. The important thing is that you have a coherent and calm speech. It”s normal to be nervous during the interview but think positive: you can control your nerves. Try to slow down a bit and that you understand the words well.
7.We tell you again to think positive. A job interview is not the end of the world and if one has not gone well, the next one will surely work out better. Don”t throw in the towel, keep getting ready. Face the next interview again with a positive attitude. Interviews also require training and as you do interviews, the better trained you will go. Think positive, don”t forget that the positive attitude is transmitted!
