Preparing Your Mind For The Interview

The time is right before the interview. You have clarity on your brand and why you are there, insights on who you are meeting with, and the organization/industry.

These are the physical steps that you should take to prepare your mind for success. Remember this; people hire people that they like and can do the job. Interviewing is about building connections (quickly) so that communication flows with ease. That is where the below mental preparation steps take you to the winners’ circle. 

Close your eyes and see yourself:  

  1. As meeting your friends over a beer or cup of coffee. 
  2. As a person there to help them solve a problem. 
  3. Readily engaging the greeter in comfortable small talk. 
  4. Walking into the room or sitting on the Zoom call very calm, smile on your face, and maintaining excellent and caring eye contact. 
  5. Answering their questions, telling stories with ease.  Readily admitting if you do not have experience with a certain thing they ask, but serve up another authentic experience that you think might convey equal success.  
  6. Relaxed and smiling at the end of the interview. You both connected in this conversation and they want you to come back.
  7. Getting up from the seat and walking out, proud of yourself, saying I did the best I could.

Getting yourself in the right frame of mind and taking the best steps for your interview success will bring you a step closer to the path you want to be on.
