What Should Be Your Mindset To Improve Confidence Levels During Interviews ?

You could had prepared well for interviews, you could literally be aware of every question that would be fired upon you in an interview, you could had completed your placement test successfully well, but during the interviews most of the students tend to get nervous. If you can cover up your nervousness and if you can still answer the questions well, then it might do good. But, in most cases, nervousness affects your ability to listen well. When you fail to listen well, the chances are that you performance could degrade as well. Knowing the root cause of this unusual nervousness can get you to overcome this feeling.

What is the root cause of sudden decrease in confidence levels during interviews?
Most of the sufferers have in common a culprit within themselves. This is called 'being overly self conscious'. This arises due to the fear of getting into embarrassing situations. Several CV readers do mail us about this problem and among them 9 out of 10 would fall into this category of being overly self conscious. In other words they start thinking that the whole world (in this case the entire panel) is paying very close attention to him/her and slightest of the mistakes could land him/her in trouble.

Having known the root cause, what is the way out ?

Now, you know the exact root cause of your mysterious nervousness that engulfs you from nowhere. What could be the solution ? The solution is simple and it is the basic understanding that you are not alone when you are worrying that your acts could land you in embarrassing situations. There are studies that suggest any person who faces a stranger would be very cautious and careful about his/her actions. This applies to the panel members as well. Now, the winner of the situation would be the one who understands this fact and tries to comfort the other. In other words, you should care very least about you getting embarrassed, instead you should start focusing on making the strangers (in this case, the panel) comfortable. This attitude is certainly reciprocal and within seconds you could feel that your nervousness has vanished.
