The Soundtrack of Your Job Interview

Bonnie Lowe

Can music help you with your next job interview? It just might! Studies suggest that having classical music playing softly in the background during your interviewing research, preparation and practice can boost your recall. Try it as you’re reading over your prepared answers for probable interview questions.

Secondly, music can help you relax, put you in a positive mood and chase away nervousness. Play songs you really enjoy and listen to them as you’re driving to your interview. Keep them upbeat and positive, like “All Star” by Smash Mouth. The lyrics could be interpreted as advice for getting ahead:

“You’ll never know if you don’t go, you’ll never shine if you don’t glow… Hey now, you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play; Hey now, you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid….”.
