A brilliant CV and cover letter create employment opportunities, but they will not secure you a job. The interview is your chance to back up in person everything that the employer has read about you.
Self-confidence is rooted in experience, knowledge and practice. Could you do with an extra boost of confidence when you walk into that interview? If you could, you would not be alone. Ideals imposed on you by yourself, the media, your company, your boss, work colleagues and even your family can make you feel that you have something to live up to. Is this helpful? Let’s look at a few simple and easy ways to boost your self-confidence in an interview situation.

Getting offered a job can make you feel really, really good. Being offered a higher salary can improve your lifestyle. Today, your job doesn’t just define you, it also protects you. Is this the reason why candidates find job interviews so crucial to their business and personal success? Are you doing the right kind of interview preparation?
Interviews are all about questions. You will be asked questions that probe, questions that put you on the spot and you might even be asked questions that you would prefer not to answer. The key is to take your time, remain calm and be up front. Questions are asked for a specific purpose and the questions you are asked will give you an indication and an insight into the company itself. Let’s look at the types of questions common to all interviews.
According to research conducted by Rescue Remedy (the on-the-spot stress reliever) 58% of us rate job interviews as one of the most stressful events we’ll encounter throughout our working lives. However, with over a third (40%) of us considering a career change within the next 12 months it’s essential that we’re well prepared for the interview process.
Have you ever gone to an interview and answered the employer’s questions in the way that you think they want? Perhaps you’re not being 100% truthful, but their head is nodding and they’re smiling, so that’s got to be a good sign right? If you do this, then don’t worry as you’re not alone.
You may be happy in your current job and not proactively looking for a new role, however, if you see your ideal job advertised or the head hunter rings with your dream role, how prepared are you to step into an interview and make a positive first impression?
