Q&A: I’m Nervous for a Job Interview. Any Advice?

I can tell when you’re nervous. Don’t be.

We will ask you questions, but we want you to ask us questions as well. This can’t be a one-way street. It’s our job to sell you on the opportunity and why this is a great place to work. It’s your job to figure out if it’s the right place for you. You may be a perfect fit for us, but if we aren’t a good fit for you, that won’t do either of us any good down the line.

An interview is a conversation, not an interrogation. When the interviewer asks you if you have any questions, never say no! Not only does it make you seem uninterested, it also means that you’re passing up on a valuable opportunity.

The interview process is about finding a good fit, both for you and for the company. Maybe you’re the perfect candidate for the job, but it’s not the right company for you. So, be curious. Ask questions.

What’s an average day like for the person in this position? Can you describe the company culture? What is the traditional career path for someone in this role?

And, (provided your not desperate for work) if the answers don’t satisfy you, don’t be afraid to walk away.

Now, let’s get into it.

What gets you excited to do your job?
