Anxiety and Interviewing

It is even worse now because I haven't interviewed in years, except for recently. I know I have not gotten jobs because of it. Please help if can help or relate. Thanks!

I used to have a lot of anxiety when going to interviews so now when interviewing I do the following...

Did you do your Homework?

Everyone one of us wants/needs to stand out when we get a coveted in-person interview.

Homework: Use Google to do some basic research. What exactly does the company do, what is there product? Where are they Headquartered at? How many employees?

Weird job hiring experience!

I went to a so called job interview for a wireless sales associate position that was available close to where I live. When I go to the place...I got there an extra 30 minutes early so I decided to wait outside for the rest of the 30 minutes left. When it was finally time for my so called job interview to start that I was scheduled for at 3:00 p.m. I decided to enter the store. When I got there i say hello and ask if i could see the store manager…

Job for person with Anxiety

I want a job where I don’t really talk to customers. Like a fastfood place just gets me anxious. Ive worked at packaging bottles and it’s killing me( all the movements) I just cant deal with people THAT much. So what do you recommend me? I’ve thought about cleaning houses that kind of stuff where I’ll just be cleaning with no interruptions and be alone for the most part. But I don’t have a car. #jobsearch #teenjobs #Housekeeper #parttime #entryle

Mental illness and job stability

I had troubles with an anxiety disorder when I was 21 years old, and was told that I would have some lasting effects from that. However, it has been a long time since that has had any bearings on my abilities to get or keep a job. Pacil was an amazing discovery, thank god.

AMEN!! PAXIL is a blessing!
