Five Easy Tips To Help You Get Through the Interview!

The interview process can be an intimidating experience for many looking to secure a new position. The experience can become almost terrifying for those who are extremely introverted. They become so nervous that they risk completely bombing the interview. The uncertainty of “being good enough” weighs heavily and their confidence quickly begins to erode. The question of “What if” pervades their thoughts:  ·          What if I have a panel interview? ·          What if they ask me (fill in the blank)? ·          What if I mess up? ·          What if I’m not good enough? ·          What if I don’t get the job, how will I pay my bills? What if I told you that the job interview doesn’t have to be a nightmare experience?  When approached from an optimistic, proactive perspective, the job interview can be productive for both the candidate and the interviewer. The following tips help provide insight on how to successfully get through the interview: 1)       Take a pos

Is a lack of confidence holding you back?

"What is the number one accomplishment in your career that you are most proud of? " An uneasy pause. A nervous laugh. “Um, Let me see…Give me a minute to think about it.” After several minutes of pondering, the client is able to offer one or two accomplishments that they are proud of.  This is a common scenario of the first few minutes of a session where I ask a new client to tell me about their career accomplishments. This response is common from clients across industries, titles and education.

We may even go as far as to say, “If I had (fill in the name)’s career, I would be so much further in my life.” Or “If I worked at (fill in the company name), I would be happier and better appreciated.”  However, once we get to the “ other side ” we find that the grass was painted green and isn’t even real and not only that, we have now been assigned the task of painting it green. By this time, unfortunately too late, we realize that the grass really isn’t greener on the other side at all and are now full of regrets. We now start looking at the “greener grass” over there and we're even more bitter. This time, however
