8 top tips to banish interview nerves
Here are some tips to help you banish your interview nerves
Prepare in advance by knowing your CV inside out back to front and upside down! Have as much information as possible about the company and the job description.
Practice answers to all the key interview questions such as “tell me about yourself” and “what are your biggest strengths”.
Try this breathing technique -
Think of someone who embodies the confidence and manner you want to put across. How would they think, act, move or talk in an interview situation? Practice being that person so you’ll be able to snap into character in any anxious moment.
The silent scream -
Sweaty palms, a bit of a turn off, so take some wipes with you and use them!!
Take a bottle of water and if you feel yourself starting to panic or your mouth drying up take small sips to calm you down.
Nerves can make you ramble so when answering questions don’t give too much information all at once, pause and give your interviewer the opportunity to ask you for more information if they want.
