For most, the euphoria at winning a coveted job interview is fast followed by anxiety of the unknown. Unwelcome scenarios of catastrophe liberally laced with humiliation will frequently be entertained in an assured that was fertile imagination. "What if I actually don't know how to answer a question?" "Will I end up slinking away - Rejected, dejected and demoralised?" Over and over again similar doubts, questions and scenes are gratified, until any idea of the interview movie becomes irrevocably linked to plenty of negative, restricting and frequently paralysing beliefs.
When an applicant's belief about interviews has powerful affiliations with negative thoughts and feelings, I can guarantee any interviewer will "feel" it.
Perhaps you have met someone and instantly felt uneasy. The result - you desired to escape from them when you could. That is the danger until you acquire positive and empowering beliefs about your future interview encounters, you invite in a interviewer's reply to you.
Your results can drastically change.
In the 1950s it was a broadly held belief that no runner could break the 4-minute mile barrier. Englishman Roger Banister did that on May 6th, 1954. It was only 46 days after that Australian runner, John Landy also ran a sub-4-minute mile, shortly followed by many more. Why suddenly were many in a position to run a mile in under 4-minutes? The answer is simple - their belief regarding the IMPOSSIBLE 4-minute mile barrier had been shattered.
What has this got to do with performing well in job the interview - everything! Your performance hinges around the confidence with which you present yourself irrespective of what really occurs. You can dramatically improve your performance, should you possess an empowering belief and expectancy that the interview will be excellent experience for you as well as all.
This can be a rather simple two step process. Produce a movie in your thoughts, then develop causes, to remind you to play with the movie. Play with it often, particularly at times to replace negative the interview emotions, feelings or related ideas.
Envision you are the Director of a picture, one in which you're also the lead actor. The story line is the next job interview. Use all your senses to produce a realistic scene or number of scenes. For example, imagine yourself driving to the building, catching a lift, you may even smell the secretary's cologne; hear chatter that is friendly from passing office staff or the hum.
In your picture you feel the interviewer's welcoming handshake, his or her voice that is warm, encouraging and supporting. You might have a sense of the chair pressing against your back, you feel comfortable enough to notice the colour and value a painting to the wall opposite. Perhaps you can taste the cup of coffee you had in the cafe down the street before you arrived. In the very least, your interview film just end once you have finished the interview and should start as you enter the building and said your goodbyes.
As the movie editor, you are able to cut and edit until you've created scenes that produces an incredible experience, and one that automatically creates positive feelings. You know if while playing the movie, it causes you to smile you might be to the right track, or you sit up straight, or you also feel your mood lifting to one of positive expectancy.
