Let’s assume that you have the academic qualifications required, that you have passed the tests that they have put in front of you and that you have ticked all the boxes in the initial interview; so what is now stopping you from reaching out and taking the job that you want?
The simple answer is only two things:
1. You and whether you genuinely believe you are the best candidate for the job and then perform accordingly - back yourself
2. Someone else being just that bit better that you despite all of your
Obviously, the only thing you can really control from those two factors is the first one; because at the end of the day if someone is better qualified, more experienced and performs better than you on the day then they deserve the job, that's life; learn from it, understand it and move on.
However, you must genuinely give it your all, know that you have done the best that you can do and be content that you have not let yourself down to be able to walk away and retain your belief and confidence.
Some confidence reaffirming ideas that you should consider using:
Everyone else going for this job is nervous
Everyone else will have some things they are good at and others which they find a challenge during the day
Tell yourself ‘I deserve to be here and I now need to give the recruiters the performance and results that they want from me to be able to give me the job; it’s in my hands’ - take control
Remind yourself ‘This is what I have prepared for; I am better prepared and more aware of what is to come that anyone else here’
Also keep in mind ‘I will be authentic, relaxed and confident but when I need to ‘fake it to make it’ I now know how to and when to do so’
Everything that they know about you is in your CV and your performance and results today; it is up to you to make sure that they see everything you have to offer during the day
Interviews are just two people talking to each other
In an interview both people have the same goal; for the candidate to be the right one for the job
Be the right one!
