Top tips for reducing Interview Anxiety:
1. Research the company and the job
Do this at a detailed level but not to the extent of knowing the absolute ins and outs of the company. I am most interested in their forward plans and the company values and how they align with my personal values.
2. Looking over my own resume/CV
Looking at what you have achieved so far and how those skills help the company that will be hiring you. Remember your uniqueness is what companies are hiring.
3. Qualities and my Values
These are the things that make us who we are and it is important for a company to see that side of our personalities because we are the people representing the public facing side of the business. Even if you will be working in an office in a cube you still represent the company by how you talk about your job and you’ll tell many more people about a job you don’t enjoy than you will about one you do enjoy, so it’s important that a company aligns with your personal values.
4. Research the person who is interviewing me
I look for things that I can connect with the person interviewing me on a human level and shows I am actually interested in the position and the person I will be working with.
5. Watch or listen to something humorous
Comedy is a great way to help you relax before an interview. When I am relaxed I think more clearly.
