Dear Expert

“Q: I often find interviews stilted or impersonal. I struggle to bring the real me into the room. It’s like listening to a recording of myself. Any tips on how to make interviews more real?”

Just the Job: Five tips to make a job interview more ‘real’

AT THE JOB INTERVIEW: BE YOURSELF, BE YOURSELF, AND OH BY THE WAY – BE YOURSELF

“At the end of it, I could tell they liked me. I was 100% myself, I did not try to tell the stories perfectly, I tried to tell them like I would tell them to
my coworkers. I fumbled, I was awkward, but I was me. And that was good enough for them.”

Thank you for all of your encouragement, for telling me to not be a perfectionist in the interview, to not overthink.

That was the best advice, and I truly needed to hear that constructive criticism. I truly felt prepared, relaxed, and ready to let them get to know
“me.”
