How Do I Overcome My Fear of Interviewing? – Job Search Radio

Fear of interviewing is a common problem for people. Arguing with the fear won’t work but there are different things you can do that will work. Here, I discuss a few things you can do to to overcome your fear.


The question for today is how do I overcome my fear of interviewing?

I want to start by saying that arguing with your fear and telling it that it’s wrong, it’s crazy, it doesn’t work. You can’t argue with it.

Generally, what you’re going through his fear of the unknown, fear of what’s going to happen and being unprepared for it. As generally with this kind of fear is all about.

You just don’t know what’s can happen and you are afraid of what will happen… Or worse – afraid of the consequences of what will happen if you fail to perform.

The best way to overcome your fears by preparing to perform. What were doing is learning how to interview well.

How do you interview well? There are many different ways. The way I’m recommending is by joining my site, It is a great vehicle for helping people learn how to interview because there are tons of questions that are asked that you can practice answering.

You see the question first, answer for yourself, listen to how I teach you how to do it, and then practice it again. And again. And again.Part of what I teach is the theater of interviewing.

So is great for basic questions, advanced questions, those annoying brainteasers and a host of other questions you might be asked.

You can also work with a friend, someone who is in your field, give them a series of questions, or tell them the kind of job you are interviewing for and destined to interview you. Have them critique how they see you. Have them give you feedback. Go over it again. And again. And again. Until you become more masterful.

I want to be clear. I said, “more masterful.” I didn’t say perfect. Perfection takes time and with an interview, the first time or two you go on a real interview, you may not be perfect at it.

After all, practice DOES make perfect and you are going to need practice. So, the best way, the very best way to overcome your fear is by practicing questions and answers with people’s when it comes to those magic moments you are well prepared.


Do you think employers are trying to help you? You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
