Anxieties are very tough to deal with especially during an interview. I am one who has anxiety’s often and for that being I know there are many like me. Here are five very helpful tips of my best solutions on how to deal with anxiety though an interview.
1. Always keep yourself relaxed and confident throughout your interview.
Try to control the overwhelming thoughts circulating through your mind. Pause and take deep breaths while you think of an applicable response.
2. Anxiety can be very powerful and hard to control.
All of a sudden your mind goes blank and your hands are sweaty. Having a notepad could really come into play! Jot down your thoughts, ideas, questions and concerns. Trust me, this will be helpful!
3. Worrying about having the “right” answer for every interview question can lead to anxieties.
Clarify the question and the answer desired in a timely fashion. This can buy you some time to think. If you are stuck on a question, don’t be afraid to ask questions to get some simplification; sometimes, this is exactly what is expected of you.
4. Anxiety can produce a lot of negative thoughts.
Tell yourself positive statements, If you think your interview is going bad tell yourself it’s going great!. You don’t need anxiety to manifest your life. You control your anxiety, anxieties don’t control you!
5. Most of all, be yourself, genuine, and direct.
For any job interview, the better prepared you are, the more likely your chances of walking out of the interview with full confidence.
I know these tips are easier said than done. Trust me, I have had my share of anxieties and in fact I still have them. I try to use a lot of these tips, not only for an interview but for my life. I realized allowing anxieties to control me has got to be nothing but a waste of energy.
Try to practice using these tips for your life. It takes a lot of time and patience to get a hold of your anxiety. Always remember you control your anxiety, your anxiety does not control you.
