had an Interview! From mute to loud!
I went from being mute and even crying in interviews. To appearing loud and confident in them. I survived!
I've had interviews in the past. I'm a University student, and I have been told many times in the past that my CV/Resume is really good.
However, whenever I get to an interview, it goes bad really really bad.
My first interview was so bad, I was so quiet, I doubt the interviewer could even hear me. I think I was so nervous, I started to make him nervous.
Yeah so I didn't get that one.
So for a different job, the interview went a bit better. I actually was a bit louder. But I was still scared, my answers did not make any sense. At all. Yeah, I didn't get that job.
I had an interview where, shock, I was audible. I prepared for this one. I thought it went well. However, I was told that I don't sound convincing. Whatever that means.
Now, this one was the worst. I had an interview, in which I was called up to an assessment centre. I was in a group. Everyone was loud, confident and really competitive. I could tell they wanted this a lot. The assessment lasted for hours, and I was being constantly observed. Whenever I had a group activity, I felt intimidated. So I just started acting silly. By the time I had my individual interview, I got asked one question, then I broke down and cried. How humiliating!
So some time later. I get called for this interview. I prepare by listing good things about myself, and why I know I can do this job. I practice talking loudly at home. Whenever, I go out. I try to talk loudly to shopkeepers, as they are scanning my items. I go out of my way and ask employees for help whenever I'm out shopping.
I walked to the interview, I kept telling myself. Be loud, be loud. I introduced myself at the front desk. I was taken back by my own voice. He heard me. During the interview, I replied without hesitation. I was still loud, I felt comfortable. I really wanted to explain myself.
I still can not believe it. I can finally express myself in interviews. I feel on top of the world. It can be done!
Wow, congrats! Hope you get the job!
Congratulations! Interviews are bloody difficult and very intimidating. It's great that you've got some momentum going.
Interviews more like interrogations.
Thank you everyone!
