  • Hi there, everybody!

  • My name is Richard McMunn from the interview training company PassMyInterview.com, and

  • in this tutorial, I'm going to answer the question that I get asked continuously every

  • week - How do I overcome interview nerves?

  • So, if you have an interview coming up and you are nervous about it, you really want

  • the job, but you are concerned about your performance, please do watch this video from

  • beginning to end.

  • I've got some great tips for you.

  • So stick around, take notes and I will teach you how to overcome interview nerves.

  • Now, before I get into those tips, as usual, a very warm welcome to this interview training

  • tutorial.

  • My name is Richard.

  • I have been helping people for about 20 years to pass their interviews, and I do that by

  • giving you tips and top scoring answers you can't find anywhere else to the interview

  • questions that you will get asked.

  • Please do SUBSCRIBE by clicking the red button below the video, and I would also very much

  • appreciate it if you gave the video a LIKE, that always motivates me to create more content

  • for you.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you very much.

  • So, let us first of all take a quick look at the common reasons for interview nerves,

  • and I'm pretty sure one of these at least will resonate with you.

  • Reason number one, for interview nerves, a lack of self-belief.

  • You don't believe that you can get the job.

  • And this is common.

  • I can tell you now that pretty much everybody else who's going for the interview will feel

  • the same.

  • But if you watch this from beginning to end, I will make sure that you do have self-belief

  • by the time we reach the end of this tutorial.

  • The common reason for interview nerves number two is that you have little or no work experience.

  • This is pretty common.

  • “I don't have any experience of work; therefore, how can I get the job?”

  • Well, I'm going to tell you during this tutorial that this is actually an ADVANTAGE if you

  • are in that position.

  • You have little or no work experience or you have no experience in the role that you're

  • being interviewed for.

  • This can work to your advantage, and I'll tell you how to use that!

  • Common reason for interview nerves number three is: you're not very good at interviews.

  • So you've not been to many interviews; therefore, youre concerned about your performance.

  • Well, first and foremost, they have invited you along to an interview, so they ARE interested

  • in you.

  • And how you perform at the interview is not indicative of how you will perform in the

  • role.

  • So there will be a little bit of leeway for interview nerves.

  • But again, as we progress through the tutorial, I will make sure that you are good at interviews

  • and you know what to say and you know what to do.

  • Common reason for interview nerves number four, you're worried what questions they will

  • ask you.

  • Again, this is common, and this is an important one because people think: “I don't know

  • what questions they're going to ask me!” and you're sat there waiting for that question

  • to come up and you are really nervous.

  • Again, everybody is in the same position as you.

  • However, if you and I do a little bit of research, we can find out what questions you are going

  • to get asked during your interview and we can prepare fully for them.

  • And I'm going to tell you the questions that you will get asked, pretty much guaranteed,

  • especially the first two questions.

  • Now, if you think about this, you go along to your interview and you know what question

  • they will ask you at the beginning.

  • You can prepare your answer and that BOOSTS your confidence massively.

  • So we'll cover that as well.

  • And the final thing, common reason number five for interview nerves: you really need

  • to get this job!

  • You really need it.

  • Everything is riding on it.

  • Therefore, you make yourself nervous and you can't perform to the required standards.

  • Again, this is normal.

  • You are in the same position as everybody else.

  • So, please take comfort in that.

  • You are not alone by feeling nervous.

  • So let's have a look at each one of them and let's tackle them.

  • So the common reason for interview nerves number one, is that lack of self-belief.

  • So what you say during your interview will demonstrate that you DO actually have self-belief.

  • The only person at this moment in time that knows you don't have any self-belief is yourself.

  • They don't know that, the interview panel.

  • So what we say during the interview is very important because we can demonstrate to them

  • that we do have self belief because words are powerful.

  • So practice saying the following sentences and then use them during your interview.

  • So take notes, and if you need to pause the video to write these down, please do so.

  • So you reach the interview and say – “I am enthusiastic, hardworking, committed, and

  • if I'm successful, I will make sure I contribute positively to your team quickly.”

  • You can say that at the beginning, when they ask you the question, TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF?

  • But if you say that to me, I am not thinking you haven't got self belief.

  • So, just by saying that and practice saying it in a positive manner – “I am enthusiastic,

  • hardworking and committed, and if I'm successful, I will make sure I contribute positively to

  • your team quickly.”

  • So there it is.

  • You can write that down.

  • Pause the video if you need to.

  • The next thing to say – “I am really keen to work for your company and I believe the

  • skills and qualities I have are a strong match for this job.”

  • I am really keen to work for your company, and I believe the skills and qualities I have

  • a strong match for this job.

  • Again, if you say that to me, I am not thinking this person hasn't got any self-belief.

  • So there it is again.

  • If you want to pause the video and write that down, please feel free to do so.

  • Let us have a look at the second reason.

  • The common reason for interview nerves, is you have little or NO EXPERIENCE.

  • It is very common.

  • A lot of people post on my channel CareerVidz and say I've got no experience.

  • I've got an interview tomorrow.

  • I'm really worried.

  • Please do not worry.

  • Having zero experience is actually going to work in your favor.

  • I would much rather employ someone with no experience who is enthusiastic and motivated,

  • than employ someone who's got bags, years of experience, but they're, you know, they're

  • not very excited about the job.

  • If you have no experience, I can really train you up, providing of course you are positive

  • in nature.

  • So if they say to you, “We're a little bit concerned about your lack of experience?”

  • say the following.

  • My enthusiasm, my motivation, my loyal approach to my work more than makes up for

  • my lack of experience.”

  • That is one sentence that if you say that to me, or to any hiring or recruiting manager,

  • they will be impressed with!

  • My enthusiasm, motivation and loyal approach to my work more than makes up for my lack

  • of experience!”

  • So again, if you want to pause that and write that down, please do.

  • Or you could say – “Because I have little experience, this means you can train me up

  • to be the model employee you need me to be in this role.”

  • That's a great thing to say!

  • Pause the video and write that down – “Because I have little experience, this means you can

  • train me up to be the model employee you need me to be in this role.”

  • So that means that, you know, you're new.

  • You've got little experience, but you are positive and enthusiastic and want to get

  • going.

  • Therefore, they can teach you, show you what to do and make you thatmodel employee’.

  • So, use it to your advantage.

  • Common reason for interview nerves number three - YOU'RE NOT VERY GOOD AT INTERVIEWS!

  • Well, join the club.

  • The majority of people who go to interviews are not very good because they don't go to

  • that many interviews.

  • It's common.

  • The hiring manager is not expecting you to be brilliant at interviews.

  • They want to see enthusiasm, positivity, and also, they want to see that you're committed

  • to their organization.

  • So the important thing, if you've not been to too many interviews and you're worried

  • about your performance, is have your answers PREPARED for the first two interview questions,

  • because this will massively boost your confidence levels.

  • If you practice your responses to the common interview questions, I'm going to show you

  • what they are in a second, then your confidence will be high and that will set you up for

  • the rest of the interview.

  • Because if you go along and you answer the first question, and then the second one, you're

  • away, you are up and running!

  • So the first question is going to be, I can pretty much guarantee, “TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF?”

  • You walk into the interview room, you don't sit down in the interview chair until they

  • invite you to do so, (that's good manners), you shake their hand, you look them in the

  • eyes and you smile.

  • Hello.

  • Pleased to meet you.”

  • They say sit down.

  • Welcome to the interview.

  • Okay, let's get started.

  • Tell me about yourself?”

  • Practice your question.

  • Practice your answer to that question.

  • Here's what to say.

  • Pause the video and take a note of this.

  • “I am a hard-working, conscientious and professional team worker who understands you

  • need to employ someone who will hit the ground running.

  • I am self-motivated and have very high professional standards that means every job I complete

  • for you will be done on time and to the required level.

  • I get on with everybody, have a cheery and positive disposition and, if you employ me

  • within this role, I will work hard to repay the faith you have shown in employing me.”

  • That’s a great answer.

  • So, you can practice that, practice it five times before you go along to your interview,

  • because I can guarantee the first question is going to beTell me about yourself?”

  • orIntroduce yourself to us?”

  • So you are up and running.

  • The second question is going to be.

  • So, why do you want to work for our company?”

  • I've been interviewing people for many years and hardly anybody says the right thing.

  • They don't know because they are focusing on the job.

  • They just want the job.

  • They're not bothered about the company, but you need to give them reasons why you want

  • to work for their company.

  • Here is a model answer to this question to boost your confidence at your interview.

  • So why do you want to work for our company?”

  • “I want to work for your company for three specific reasons.

  • Firstly, you are clearly a company who has values and standards that are a match for

  • my own.

  • Secondly, you provide great products and services and I would feel proud to work for your company.

  • Finally, having carried out some research, you are a company who has ambitious plans

  • for the future and I would very much like to be a part of those.”

  • Three great reasons for working for any company!

  • Those apply to any company whatsoever.

  • Again, pause the video and write those down if you want to.

  • So, common reason for interview nerves number four, you're worried what questions will be

  • asked, and common reason for interview nerves number five - you really need to get this

  • job!

  • So, it does not matter that you have a lack of experience.

  • It does not matter that you don't have much interview experience.

  • We can overcome those by making sure that you are prepared for your particular interview

  • questions.
