As I mentioned inJob Hunting Milestone #2: The face-to-face Interview,” I have an interview in a few days. I have made a few preparations in the meantime.
I want to make a good first impression. I went to the salon and got a haircut, and made sure my interview suit is in good condition. I have copies of my resume on special resume paper. I have a briefcase that I use for interviews that helps reinforce professionalism.
Next, I will prepare myself for any questions they may ask. I am currently researching the company and its mission. They have given me a specific topic to teach in front of a group of people. I am reviewing the topic and will take advantage of this time to highlight my teaching skills.
My worst problem is that I tend to get anxious and panic in high pressure situations. Maybe if I prepare for it and do my research then I will not feel as anxious.
