When I get to the interview I always get frightened and wonder what kind of questions are going to be asked, then I start to forget even little great things that I need to say mostly in the interview, how can I overcome this?
- anonymous Hi Emily, this is such a common problem for many people, and not just in interviews, but in giving presentations, or in speaking in court or just in an important meeting. Here is my suggestion: plan out your responses to anticipated questions. Write out your responses. Practice them several times and think of them in bullet point terms. Recite them from memory. Then, in the interview, don't try to remember what you wrote, but rather, you should have the facility to speak freely, as you already have practiced extensively. When in doubt, pause, take a breath, and start again. Good luck!
