The last of my three tips to nail that job interview? Be like the person who's interviewing you.
Take your cues from them. If they're upbeat, be upbeat. If they sit a certain way, sit like that too (unless they're slouching with their foot on their leg.) Anticipate from the type of job you're going for what the interviewer might wear, and follow their lead—and if you're not sure, err on the side of smart rather than casual.
And don't try not to be nervous. Nerves are something you're going to feel, so just embrace them and tell yourself nerves are just another word for excitement. If they're dancing in your stomach, think, 'Wow, I'm so excited, I can feel it.'
Of course, the best way to combat nervousness is to prepare yourself. Google generic interview questions on line and make sure you have solid answers. Role play with someone and never wing it.
Remember that job interviews are a numbers game. If you have a positive attitude and educate yourself—read a self development book so you have an emotional intelligence as well as whatever else you have going for you—you can get a job.
You got this. And remember, if you want to hear more about TCI's epic Life Coaching Summit on August 8 and 9, click the link here. I'd love to see you there.
