Relaxed confidence is power! Learn how to build this mindset so you can walk into your interview with the power to impress!
When you are conducting a job search, resumes and interviews are a major part of your efforts to put yourself out there.
Interviews are generally the most daunting part of the process. There are always those questions we are afraid of getting
A good job search strategy includes being well prepared for those difficult questions.
This preparation will go a long way toward alleviating the stress of the interview process.
The best way to prepare for difficult interview questions is to answer them ahead of time.
Think of the most undesirable questions you could be asked in an interview. Really dig, like a reporter, to find the hardest questions!
Write them down.
Writing the questions down will help you process and formulate your thoughts.
It may also help you uncover more questions to make the exercise more thorough.
After you have written down all the difficult questions you can think of, answer them as if you have been asked in an interview. Write, and speak, your answers as many times as you need to feel confident in your answer.
A huge part of interview anxiety is generated simply from the fear of being asked these difficult questions.
When you do this exercise, much of that fear and anxiety is alleviated. You can then walk into the interview feeling more relaxed, and presenting a more confident self to the interviewer. This relaxed confidence will show. It will allow you to answer ALLl the questions you are asked with more grace.
The good news is, you will likely not even be asked these questions. The purpose of the exercise is to prepare for the possibility of being asked so you don’t have to worry about it. It will be well worth the effort and the peace of mind you gain, even if the questions are never asked.
You can walk into the interview room with a rockstar mindset and have an awesome job interview!
