Ifyou have a job interview coming up it is normal to have pre-interview nerves. Tohelp calm you down I’ve supplied a number of reasons below as to why youshouldn’t worry about your upcoming interview.
Congratulations,you have been short listed
Manypublishing vacancies are inundated with hundreds of applications, so to getshort listed means that your application stood out. It proves that you have thepotential to get hired.
Jobinterviews are useful experiences
Evenif you don’t get the job it is still great interview experience that you canlearn from next time round.
Many of the interview candidates will produce good interviews. This means that employerswill choose the right candidate that is most suited to their company, so don’t be offended if youaren’t hired because you could have had a good interview, but you just weren't the right person for the job. Therefore, don’t take itpersonally and try not to let it knock your confidence.
You will beokay no matter what
Inthe grand scheme of things its only one job interview that will be about 30 minuteslong. As long as you have prepared for it, there is nothing more that you cando. Overall, you should try your best, keep calm and enjoy it.
Goinginto your job interview in the right frame of mind will make all thedifference. Don’t go in there as a nervous wreck, take a few deep breaths andsmile. What’s the worst that can happen?
