You’ve managed to make it past the first hurdle and you now have your job interview scheduled. Even when you have gone to hundreds of interviews, it never seems to get any easier. With each interview, you are meeting new people, selling yourself, and forced to stay enthusiastic through it all. This can be a challenge, especially when you’re interviewing for a job you would love to be hired for.
There are ways to make an interview less stressful. An hour of preparation can go a long way. The more time you take in advance to get ready, the more comfortable you’ll feel during the interview. Just remember, a job interview is not an exam: you don’t need to prepare for extended periods of time per day.
