4 Strange Ways To Help Those Interview Nerves
When nerves take hold we do tend to speed up. While waiting take some deep breaths through your nose and count to ten, slowly breathing out for ten and repeat three times. This will allow your heart rate to slow down making you feel more relaxed.
This is a simple trick to stop yourself from shaking, by squeezing and tightening your thigh muscles you will stop any other part of your body from shaking. It is simple but it is effective.
Take a trip to the bathroom ( only if you have time). Stick your tongue out and try to say the nursery rhyme Mary had a little lamb out loud. This will open your throat and make you sound more confident. Remember to do this in the bathroom, not in front of the hiring manager.
More than likely you will be directed into a waiting room before the interview. If there are seats available don’t sit down. This can cause you to get more nervous and the last thing you want is for the hiring manager to see you struggling to get up out of a seat. Standing will make you come across as more confident and will be a great first impression to make.
