Have you ever felt jittery before an interview? Nervous or even terri?ed? Have you ever wished you had answered a question differently or negotiated your salary more skillfully? Do you panic when you imagine the possibility of “failure”? Do you just want to make sure you get it right the ?rst time?
Let’s face it. Interviews are not like normal conversations. Being interviewed can be scary, even for ordinarily outgoing people. When you’re sitting in the hot seat, the interviewer is an authority ?gure, and he or she has all or most of the power in the interview.
Guess what? Studies show that more than 60 percent of interviewers have never been trained in the task of interviewing. Most of these managers report that they feel “nervous, anxious, confused, stressed” and even “incompetent” when taking on the responsibility of conducting a job interview.
Now that you’re reading Fearless Interviewing, take another look at who’s being trained and who’s not!
