Job interviews combine so many different kinds of work stress that Interview Coaching has become a recognised branch of stress management, in much demand by beginners and top players alike.
You can help by remembering what an interview actually is. It’s a sales pitch in the form of a conversation. Your brief is to promote your potential benefits to the organisation, in a form that the employer will recognise and remember, and suggest likely advantages over other applicants. And although it is not a scripted recital, the key points should be itemised and memorised, and you should try to put all of them across during the course of the interview.
This needs preparation, including listing those key strengths in the first place. For it is remarkable how many people simply don’t know what their strengths and weaknesses are.
Do you know yours? Let us know.
