We Asked, You Answered: The Toughest Part of an Interview

January 8, 2014

Career Advice

Landing an interview is no easy feat but nailing an interview might be even harder. The anxiety and stress only increases once you realize that your one chance has arrived. We asked our Facebook fans for their thoughts on what is the toughest part of the interview. Here’s what they said:
  1. “Walking in the door!” – Nancy D.
    Put a smile of your face and walking through the door will be a whole lot easier. A smile exudes confidence, and confidence is key for any interview. If you don’t have confidence in yourself, how can anyone else?
  2. “The first five minutes!” – Jon P.
    By setting the stage with a smile and a confident manner, the first five minutes of your interview will go a heck of a lot more smoothly than if you had entered with sweaty palms and a weak handshake. Dress the part, play the part, and before you know it you’ll be believably acting the part.
  3. “The uncertainty of it all.” – Sharon K.P.
    The truth is, you just can’t think about all the bad things that could go wrong. Read our post on three things NOT to think about in your next interview and you’ll better understand why a positive attitude is the only attitude to have in an interview.
