So you were successful at the career fairs and advanced to interviews
But the competition is tough and you know that you’ve got to bring your A-game
You’re hoping that the mojo will come to you in the moment and that all of your fabulous skills will magically shine through
But it’s only natural to be nervous
Because you don’t want to be the candidate who comes off too formal
or too informal…
You’ve got to find a balance between enthusiasm…
After all, everybody knows that you’re charming and hilarious, but what if they don’t laugh at your punch lines?
Or they catch you totally off-guard
And there’s only so much that you can do to shake it off
Before it just gets awkward and you feel like all you are doing is sweating
Or highlighting skills that could perhaps stand not to be mentioned
If these interview jitters are haunting you mercilessly, just stop where you are,
And remember that as long as you remain confident,
and be yourself,
Ok, maybe not that yourself…
then your awesome qualifications and superstar personality will shine on through! Soon enough, you’ll be behind that desk.
