It’s OK To Be Nervous

It would be nice if your heart didn’t palpitate, your hands didn’t sweat, and your mouth didn’t go dry, but most people, even executives, experience one or more of these symptoms when they interview.

But here’s the good news: it’s OK to be nervous. Let me repeat that. It’s OK to be nervous, and it is essential for you to accept theway you feel.

It is very unrealistic to tell yourself you should be different from the way you really are. It just makes you feel worse about yourself. By shifting your thinking to self-acceptance, you feel more in controland more confident almost immediately.

There is no way of predicting which questions will be asked in an interview, but by reviewing the “most common” questions you will begin to focus on how to present yourself in the most prepared and positive manner.

1. Q. “Tell me about yourself”

Any conversation when one person is getting to know another person starts with the question, “Tell me about yourself.” Whether it is in a job interview, in a media interview, a social setting, a sales call, a chance meeting with someone – this question will be asked in one way or another.

cutofinterviewcoach1The question is, “How can you make yourself stand out when there are so many other candidates looking at the same job?”

The answer is to “focus” – focus on what makes you unique.

Let’s assume that you have an outstanding resume and that you make it to the top of the stack of resumes of people to be called for an interview. You, and maybe nine or ten other equally qualified people for the position, that is.

Because companies have so many candidates to choose from, they are interviewing more people so that they can select the “best.” When you are lucky enough to be invited to an interview, it is essential that you be ready to sell yourself, to let the interviewers know what makes you unique, what added value you can bring to the position—in other words, why you are the best person for the job.

Behavioral Interviewing

No, behavioral interviewing has been around since the 70’s when industrial psychologists developed a way of “accurately” predicting whether a person would succeed in a job.

Questions For You To Ask

By admin


1. Ask questions that came up during the interview. In other words, if they have talked a lot about a certain thing – “databases” – make sure you ask some questions about databases. “It seems from the questions you asked me, or from what I am picking up today…. Could you tell me more – or some other question you want clarified that came up during the interview. (Read between the lines).

2. “Do you have any doubts that I can do this job?”

3. “Is there any additional information that I can provide to you that would convince you that I am the best person for this job……..(drum roll) because I believe I am. (only if you believe you are) Isn’t this kind of like “closing” or “asking for the sale?”
