Practice, practice, practice! Even the most acclaimed performers must practice. So, then, why would you expect less of yourself if you want to have a successful job interview? Running through your research, how to handle small talk and then moving on to the deeper elements of your interview can help you to be comfortable and confident in your interview.
Recently we have had reports of interview panels in which the interviewers engage in personal conversation amongst themselves. Our best guess as to what this may mean to you is that the interviewers are hoping you will chime in and offer up personal information about yourself such as your children, ill family or future goals, to allow the employer to identify risk factors without having asked you the question direct. So job seekers beware, be alert and refrain from offering up personal information which could allow you to be discriminated against.
The linked article is a great outline on how to practice and prepare for your interview. It offers up step by step methodology which when utilized will be very helpful. Keep pressing forward, all the energy and effort you put into your job search is not in vain. Every moment of this process is molding you into a better employee and enriching your personal life as well.
