Recognize: “I have emotions!”
The non-verbal experts, say there are solutions for nervous people, too.
First of all, however, you must accept that you may have a problem with emotions.
You can even tell the interviewer that you have emotions. After all, it’s a normal feeling. And the recognition of shyness can even be a way to break the ice and further decrease the tension that does not give you peace, say the experts.
And psychologists also point out that it is important to assume your shyness, to turn it into an asset. Often, timid people have a special charm, and sometimes they are more competent. It depends, however, on what the job is all about. Definitely, at a job where the audience is working, the shadows do not cope. But an excellent creative, for example from advertising, could be, without any problem, shy.
Once you have the awareness stage, you have to prepare yourself for the interview much better. Actually, you have to be 10 when you leave home, so that at the interview you manage to be at least eight.
For this, you need to find information about the company and about the job you are interviewing for. This will strengthen your confidence in you and you will not hesitate before the recruiter, argues the specialists.
As your answers will “flow”, your confidence will grow and prove you’re competent. And a good human resource specialist will see beyond your emotions.
Obviously, there are situations in which those with the thirst manage to interview and conquer the recruiter, even if they are much less well prepared than those candidates with too much sense.
The psychologists, however, state that nervous people, who manage to “trick” the employer, lie in fact on them. Their success is, as a rule, of short duration. Early enough, the recruiter will understand that he did not make the right choice and give up, admit the psychologists.
In fact, where’s the problem?
Even if you missed more interviews because of emotions, you do not have to abandon the race for a better job. Psychotherapists say it is appropriate to identify the causes that lead to these emotional states. After all, what bothers you? The fact that you are in front of an employer? Or that you will not be able to cope with the job requirements?
A serious auto-analysis will reveal the weaknesses. Much work has to be done to increase self-esteem. This can be done by calling a personal coach, career counselor, psychologist, or even a close friend. It is important to talk to someone about the emotional state to understand what it is triggering.
