Impressing during an interview doesn’t work
According to research, recruiters tend to hire people who they like, and who are like them. It is important to let recruiter know your skills but if you try to impress recruiter, in an interview, with your vast knowledge then it might not work.
One way to do this is stop trying to impress the recruiter and try to put yourself in their shoes.
One should take into consideration that recruiters might be stressed or tired so you can think about how to make them feel at ease, in a formal setting.
Channel your positive thoughts
Often when people get nervous they start to get negative thoughts like they won’t succeed. You should always pay close attention to the thoughts you get.
If during a job interview you think that you are boring the interviewer and won’t get the job, stop and challenge that thought of yours and replace it with something positive.
In order to get yourself into a positive mind-set you can practice focusing on your strengths.
Stay Calm and Relaxed
Most of the time when people go for an interview they think about how will they come across and about their body language, if you relax yourself then your body language will take care of itself.
In order to boost your confidence, you can calm yourself and take deep breaths, this will not only help you to feel relaxed but will also counteract your nerves and give you a confidence boost.
In the end, in order to land the job you should present yourself well, come across as competent and should be able to manage your nerves.
The best tip is to listen to your body, instead of breathing too quickly or telling yourself you will fail, you should be calm and relaxed with positive thoughts.
