Don’t worry it’s completely normal and happens to everyone. The reason why you’re nervous is that of the pressure you’re putting on yourself. Because you really want the job, and value the possible opportunity, and have thought about the interview so much, you’ve put more pressure on yourself.
Putting pressure on yourself is both good and bad. It tends to increase your self-accountability and responsibility but also hinders your abilities at the moment. You have to find the balance between preparation, effort, and pressure.
It’s definitely easier said than done to limit the pressure you put on yourself, but once you realize it’s in your best interests, you’ll do it. Focus on understanding the interviewer, the company, and their business model, not so much about how you’ll perform, or the actual interview itself.
It’s incredibly tough to get the opportunity to interview for a sought after position, by putting added pressure on yourself, you’re decreasing your chances of securing the position.
The key is to think of the interview as any other take it conversation you tend to have, but once you’re in the moment, lock-in and focus. Focus your attention on arming yourself with all the information you’ll need, and letting your instincts at the moment do the rest.
