How to Be Confident During Job Interviews

Episode 1 - Three Strategies That Will Give You an Unfair Advantage for Your Job Interviews

The Job Hunting Podcast episode number 1 is out of the bag! In this episode, my goal was to make you re-think your stress and use it to your advantage.

Episode 1 - Three strategies that will give you an unfair advantage for your job interviews

I focus on three key themes during this chat:

Focus less on your fear:

everyone is as nervous and jittery as you are, the other candidates as well as the people interviewing you. The candidates, including you, all want the job. And the selection panel has the pressure of getting it right. There is a lot on the line, all around. Once you come to terms with this (that is, stress is the baseline for you and your competition), you can focus on other things.

Focus on your strengths:

Which is what got you through the door in the first place. And it may be what the panel needs to know about you. Indeed, it could be what they need in their team.

Use your stress to sharpen your focus:

relax into the situation, be yourself, read the room, use the pressure to your advantage.

All while you learn about how I shrunk my skirt and other bits of information you may or may not find helpful!
