How to Combat Interview Nerves

Attending an interview can naturally make you feel nervous. There is a lot at stake, especially if it is a job that you would really like to get. If this is the case, then you will want to put a lot of work into your interview technique – but this still won’t necessarily stop you feeling the fear. Here are some tips to stay calm during an interview:

  • Take deep breaths. This will help to slow your heartrate down so you will feel calm.
  • Concentrate on the questions. When the interviewer asks you a question, think deeply and carefully about it, rather than about what the interviewer thinks of you and how you are coming across.
  • Change the way you think about an interview. One of the best things you can do to combat nerves is to think of an interview as a chance for you to find out if you want the job.
