Reduce Interview Nerves by Practicing.
There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding a job interview.
One way to alleviate some of the pressure and uncertainty is to rehearse your experience out loud.
Audibly answering common questions (even if you’re by yourself) will help you uncover any rough areas of your delivery and will also help you recall those stories you may not have thought about for many years.
Please don’t just “wing it” at the interview.
Have you ever had to sit through a presentation from someone who’s winging it?
It’s often a rambling mess.
The pressure is up during an interview which will make recalling your old stories on the spot much more difficult.
Take the time beforehand to rehearse those great examples you have to give yourself a competitive advantage over the other candidates.
Not just once but two different times I've been told at interviews that they are looking for someone "less senior" meaning they are discriminating against me based on age. They were foreigners from China so I guess they didn't really know or care about our laws. I also guess they prefer hiring someone who is irresponsible and spends all day on their phone chatting with their friends about which bar they are going to after work. #ageism #interview
Bad Day at Work
We all have had that one day at work where something happens that was so bad it's almost comical. I remember when I was bus boy and I had dumped an entire tray of water on a customer's lap or go out the wrong door of the kitchen slamming it into a waiter full of plates that was knocked to the floor and covered in food. Being Tik Tok Thursday, I found this bit of workplace disaster something I could relate to:
Do you have a story of a work place disaster that you caused? What happened to you? Me, from the ones I had, I learned to take the drinks off my tray working out to in and always use the right door for the kitchen :). #TTT #deliverydriver #foodservices #interview
