I used to feel SO nervous when I was being interviewed for jobs.
I had never worked in an office until I started my first ‘proper’ job after university, and was always so intimidated by people in fancy suits in shiny buildings.
Having been on the other side of interviews as a recruiter, I know what it’s like as a nervous candidate, so always did my best to make candidates feel at ease.
Good interviewers will want to see the best from anyone that they interview.
Nerves happen to all of us – sweaty palms and an increased heart rate (among others) are all signs our body feels under threat. This was useful when we were defending our caves from wild animals – but not so useful in an interview!
