Learn to finesse your job interview


SAN FRANCISCO, CA — So you have made it to the interview stage. You should feel proud that the employer was impressed enough to want to conduct a personal interview. This is your opportunity to sell yourself and to find out if this is the job/position that you want. The first thing you need to do is relax. Take 3 deep breaths and imagine yourself having a successful interview, feeling confident, and acting professional.

For most of us, an interview can bring about mixed emotions of excitement and fear. Unfortunately, many people begin to focus on the fear and begin to worry about everything: What if I say the wrong thing? What if I make a mistake? What if I am rejected for the job? All of this negative thinking can lead to nothing but negative consequences. So stop worrying!

Since the purpose of the interview is for you and the interviewer to reach an employment decision, you can feel comfort in knowing that you are interviewing them too. Think of the interview as your opportunity to get to know more about the position and the company. Take advantage of this by showing your interest and asking questions. When it comes to the job interview, you need to master, being positive, being prepared, being personable, and being professional.
