Welcome to The Career Upgrade, dedicated to helping you land the job you want, build a career you deserve, and make the money you’re worth!
Do you feel that it doesn’t matter how much you prepare for your job interview, you still freeze up and your mind goes blank as soon as you step into the meeting? You’re not used to speaking about yourself so sometimes oftentimes you mess up your words.
Especially when you’re nervous.
Do you find that even though you’re hard working and have the credentials to show for it, you just don’t seem to be able to communicate this and make your answers reflect the hard working person that you are?
And do you believe that because of this, you’re destined to have a painstakingly long job search process?
I’ve got some good news and bad news…
First the bad news
You will never stop feeling nervous!
It’s normal to be nervous.
Nervousness is your body’s natural response to help prepare you to handle a perceived or imagined threat. To help you deal with something that’s outside of your comfort zone.
Like a job interview, for example.
I have yet to meet the candidate who is unfazed with attending a job interview (and I’ve been an HR leader for well over a decade and I’ve interviewed thousands of candidates around the world).
Now the good news
You can choose to not let your nervousness get the better of you
Here’s the interesting thing about our body.
It doesn’t know if it’s preparing for an opportunity or a threat. It only knows that it’s preparing us for action.
It’s our conscious mind that sends the signal which tells the body whether we should be anxious or excited.
We have the ability to intercept the signal and instead of telling ourselves “I’m nervous because I have a job interview”, we can say “I’m excited because I have a job interview.
By turning our emotions into excitement instead of anxiety, we are less distracted by the emotion and better able to focus on the task at hand (i.e. in this case, the job interview).
Interviewing is a skill – and you can learn how to master it
Being good at interviewing is not something you are born knowing how to do. It’s a skill.
This means you can learn how to be so proficient in interviewing that you’ll breeze through the interview and land job offers with ease and speed.
You can learn to talk about the value you bring to a company in a way that undeniably confirms to the hiring team that you are the one they’re searching for.
You’ve come to the right place!
Helping ambitious professionals who struggle to land job offers to prepare for the interview the correct way, identify their value and impact, and formulate compelling and crystal clear interview answers so they can land the job with ease and speed, is what I do.
