Tips for Getting the Job: Stay Calm

While there are so many things to remember during interviews, one of the most important tips to remember during an interview is to relax.  Because interviews tend to bring excitement and nervousness, many people forget to stay calm and relax.  However, staying calm and relaxed is definitely crucial to remember when being interviewed.  Remembering to stay calm will help you to be yourself during the interview and answer the interview questions smoothly.

Many times candidates think that they have to answer the interview questions immediately after they have been asked.  This is not necessarily the case.  While you don’t want to take an extended period of time to answer a question, it is okay to take a minute to gain your thoughts before responding.  Taking a short amount of time to regain your thoughts and think will help you to stay calm during the interview and answer the questions correctly.  It is also important to stay calm in order to make sure you listen to the whole question that the interviewee asks and can answer all parts of the question.

Remembering to stay calm when you go into an interview is extremely important.  The interviewee wants to see that you are calm, cool, and collected during your interview.  Staying calm, smiling, and looking the interviewee in the eye will help show that you are confident. So remember, stay calm during your interview!
