Interviews are the type of activity that you get better at with practice. Over time you learn what stories are most effective, which examples fall flat, and how to present yourself most effectively. Unfortunately, most interviewees don’t have much time to perfect the craft. Most interviewees want the job search process to be as short and sweet as possible… for obvious reasons! The more you interview, the longer you’re not doing the job you want.
Many people I work with are terrified of interviewing. Outside of the interview, they are able to articulate why they are qualified and why they want the job. They’re mock interview rock stars! But as soon as they get to the real deal, the nerves kick in and it all falls apart. Interviews are high-stress, high-stakes situations, so this is completely normal and happens every day.
… But it doesn’t have to happen to you!
I created this course to help people get over that interview anxiety hump. Through the lessons and activities, I hope to empower you – the interviewee – with a level of confidence that will carry you through your interview. You can do this!
