Get started on creating the career you deserve today with the right approach to job interviews. There are a few basic tips that can help you feel less anxious about job interviews:
Be calm and confident:
Many people have attended a job interview only to find out that it was a bad fit. One of the best interview tips for people with social anxiety is to never get too excited about the job. This is only one interview. You might have dodged a bullet and months of a miserable job. Keep looking until you find the right fit.
Be certain to have the right attitude:
It is important to go into a job interview with the right attitude. Be positive that things will work out. Then, stay in the present. Do not worry about where you parked your car or why the interviewer was late. Go in with the right attitude, and remain positive throughout the interview.
Be careful not to read too far into things:
People that have social anxiety often tend to see behaviors and social signals that are inaccurate. Stay present, and stay collected. When you feel yourself getting increasingly anxious, pause for a second. Speak more slowly. Be articulate by staying calm.
