Interview performance and how to improve
« on: June 08, 2018, 02:36:38 PM »
I have an interview (well more precisely a selection day; it is more than simply an interview) next week. I am one of those people who can perform well in a job, and put together an excellent application. But when in front of a panel, I perform very differently to how I would in a job or indeed if I was simply talking about myself, my experiences etc to those on the panel. I have sought feedback and this is shown below.

From my general recollection across both interviews, my key piece of advice would be to ensure that in interviews you listen carefully to the question and respond succinctly to this.  I recall that you can give a lot of background in your answers, which can make it difficult for panel members to really see the substance of the response.  Try to keep the question at the forefront of your mind when responding, and think about the key points which you need to cover in order to answer the question.

The issue is, I KNOW all this. But when in front of a panel, it all goes out the window and I revert to "rabbit in headlights" It is involuntary and no amount of talking to myself beforehand, reading, preparation makes a difference. I have had brain freeze and then gabbled. It's also difficult to keep the question in mind when they are long questions with various "parts" to them; it's so easy to lose track. I also have ADD which is another handicap.

Being "succinct" concerns me because I am always afraid of not being thorough enough, which I have been told in the past.

I genuinely don't know how to stop it and would appreciate some sensible advice from other members.

Thanks

Relaxing music on YouTube for sleep might help.

  • siamesegirl: Maybe I am wrong. There were just lots of posts from that user with a . in and nothing else. As there has been a lot of nonsense on the board lately it's sometimes difficult to tell. Maybe it is a genuine poster. I did see a message from about a year ago.
