Rocking an interview takes practice, but the most valuable practice you can have is an actual interview. You will experience the nerves, waiting for your turn, the initial handshake.
Controlling your emotions, your posture, your tone of voice, the delivery of your answers all takes time and practice. So go to interviews of roles that you may not love, as having that experience will lead you to rock the interview for the role you do want.
I always say the average candidate reaches their “interviewing comfort level” at around interview #4, so go out, get yourself into interviews and remember they will help you get your job.
So here is a list of skills you will master only by going to interviews that you can’t master doing Mock Interviews with an Interview Strategist like me:
- Feeling nerveous
- Not knowing the interviewer at all (my clients already know me and have a certain level of comfort talking to me and I can’t undo that comfort)
- Reading Interviewer’s faces, you may get the serious one, or a super smiley one that makes tough questions. The more interviewers you face and react to the better you will become and taking control and making on the spot decisions regarding your answers.
- The unpredictable factor like having an obstacle that almost made you run late, yet you had to keep your cool.
Get out there, go to interviews and become the best version of yourself.
