I would like for all of you who deal with severe anxiety, how do you handle interviewing without showing it? I start sweating terribly and lose my train of thought and it is just becomes a mess! 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 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.
I was hired at Ralphs about four months ago as a courtesy clerk (bagging groceries, the lowest position you can get at Ralphs) and then was promoted to become their bookeeper within 2 and a half months. Normally, you go through cashier training, and then you can be a bookeeper if they promote you. (Our current bookkeeper is pregnant and so my bosses were scrambling to find someone fast to take over.) At first I was very hesitant to take on the job, but I decided to challenge myself and I knew I did not want to be scrubbing toilets and pushing carts, so I decided why not. So off to training I went, (10 days of the most stressful, brutal work days of my life) and after training was done I tried so hard to quit. (Suddenly pushing carts and scrubbing toilets didn't seem so bad) I decided it was just not for me, but I knew deep down that, I would be totally unprofessional since my bosses had already invested so much time in me. I needed to at least give it a couple of months. So along with bookeeping, I'm also responsible for directing phone calls to different departments in the store.
But I simply can't dial the department number and talk one-on-one over the phone with that employee. No, if you've ever gone grocery shopping, you hear a voice over the intercom/speaker calling to someone or asking a department to pick up a phone call for customer service. This is called paging someone/a department. When I figured out that I had to speak into the phone and have my voice be heard by all of my co-workers, bosses, and customers, I just about died of humiliation and anxiety. Tomorrow will technically be my third day on my own, and I know that I have to deal with paging people. I know it only takes a few seconds to get the message out, but you also have to speak up loud and clear. My job begins as early as 5:30 am, and wouldn't you know it, I am not a morning person. My biggest issue is simply picking up the phone, pressing the paging button and talking into it. At 5:30 am, my voice is groggy, gruff, low, scratchy, and along with my anxiety of talking loudly, this makes it near impossible to speak up. (My heart pounds, I get dizzy, and my hands sweat profusely) I wondered if any of you have gone through this much phone anxiety, for a job, and how did you overcome it. I appreciate any responses given. Thank you!
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! So the person I ask was actually the manager so I told her I was scheduled for a 3:00 p.m interview with her so she told me to step inside. When I got their in my mind I thought I was going to get a proper job interview like I normally do with the many jobs that I applied to in the past months are so and years past. When I step inside...she ask me if I had any sales experience and I started to talk about where I used to work and type of sales experience that I had. When I started talking she was completely ignoring everything I had to say! Then she started attacking me for the way that I was standing. Me personally I'm a person that grew-up introvert and I'm a person that's been trying to overcome my social anxiety disorder. Normally my social anxiety doesn't affect my abilities in the workforce, but in school it does to a certain extent. I also tend to be awkward when I'm new at place that I never been to or that I feel like a complete stranger. She completely downplay me the entire time and my skils/abilities that I had. Then after like 6 minutes later another person that was scheduled for an interview aswell came in and then after that she completely ignore me the whole time and didn't ask me anything and only asked the other person questions, but the hiring manager only asked like 1 or 3 questions to both of us the whole time and after that she was like im going to hire you both and then start to basically lecture us on things not to do, but didn't mention anything about the real expectations of the job or why this is a great place to work.
