Chill Out During the Job Interview

How to Deal With Interview Stress: Job Tip Says 'Relax'

by Caroline Levchuck

A relaxed job candidate is a confident job candidate.

Show the interviewer that you're calm, composed and in command during an
interview. He's likely to assume that you'll be rock-solid on the job too.

Use these tips to stay relaxed during an interview:
  • Breathing deeply and slowly (and quietly, of course).
  • Sit up straight and don't cross your legs or arms.
  • Speak slowly and pause for breath often.
  • Keeps your hands and jaw relaxed; no clenching.
  • Smile -- it really is contagious!

I've often found that writing reminders to do these things in my portfolio helps.
