My company has helped hundreds of people find their dream jobs in the past few months, but the number of exceptional people for whom anxiety is a limiting factor is astounding. As my team discussed this problem, we learned that one of our team members once turned down an opportunity in the final stages, telling the company that she had taken another offer, because she was too anxious to attend the final round interview.
If that story sounds familiar, you're in the majority. A 2016 study by Harris Interactive and Everest College found that 92% of American adults are anxious about job interviews. So, how can you combat this widespread anxiety and give yourself the chance to show up to your interview with more confidence and less sweaty palms?
