Demolish Your Next Job Interview (With This Mental Trick)

Demolish Your Next Job Interview (With This Mental Trick)

Most people completely blow their job interviews before they even open their mouths.

The reason?

They psych themselves out and let insecurity take over.

But you’re about to learn a simple mental shift that will help you walk into your next interview brimming with confidence.

The Typical Trap:

For most of us, job interviews bring up all kinds of insecurities and doubts.

“What if they ask me something I don’t know?”

“What if they think I’m not qualified?”

“What if I make a stupid mistake?”

We get caught in a fearful mindset where we’re focused on all the ways we could screw it up.

And anxiety inevitably comes through in our body language, tone, and speech patterns.

The Better Mindset:

Here’s the simple mental pivot – instead of going into interviews wondering if you’re good enough, ask yourself “Am I the right fit for this role?”

It shifts the burden of judgment from you having to prove your self-worth, to you evaluating if the role and company align with your skills and goals.

You’re interviewing them just as much as they’re interviewing you.

With that mindset, you can be calmer, more authentic, and have a two-way discussion rather than an examination.

How to embody it?

  • Before the interview, make a list of what’s truly important to you in a role/company. Think things like values, culture, growth opportunities etc.

  • Have 3-5 thoughtful questions ready to assess if this is the right fit for you.

  • During the interview, focus on making it a friendly conversation to determine mutual fit.

With this mental reframe, you’ll carry yourself with more poise and confidence.

You’ll be evaluating them as much as they’re evaluating you.

Give it a try for your next interview, and watch how much more at-ease and compelling you come across!
