Nerves are common. Nerves are healthy. You’re nervous because you care and want to do well.
However, there is a big difference between being a little nervous and having crippling nerves before an interview that can impact your performance.
So, why the nerves?
The uncertainty. Before most interviews, we don’t know:
A. The personalities of the people we will be meeting with. B. The exact questions we will receive.
There are 2 main ways to reduce interview nerves:
We can only control what is in our control, and those 2 things are very much in our control.
Whether a company is public or private, research ahead of time to gain familiarity and prepare yourself with good questions for the interviewer.

So I applied to a job at a company through Indeed, and they called me back and left a voicemail to call them. When I checked Glassdoor, their most recent reviews (from May 2020 to now) are all 5/5 star reviews -- at least 1 per month. Whereas, the older ones are all less than stellar. Should I take this to be a red flag? Or call them back? Any advice would be most welcome. #jobsearch #jobhunt #interview #advice
