Interview Tip of the Month:
Interview Flop? Here's how to get past it:
Research shows that memories are subject to change every time you recall them. So if you've had a rough interview experience, you can actually re-memorize it to make it less traumatic – and get your interviewing confidence back:
- Bring the memory to your mind and picture it getting smaller and fainter (playing back on a smartphone that's moving away from you).
- Add details that jumble the memory. For example, turn your interviewer into a cartoon character and transform the meeting room into the inside of a candy store.
- Repeat this process several times and the bad interview simply won't matter as much to you. It might even make you chuckle because you have literally and physically rewired your brain!
