How often do you get nervous preparing for your next interview? Do you find yourself worrying about what to do if you get the job rather than focusing on the interview itself? 


Interviewing is all about taking time to get to know each other. If your mind is racing ahead and worrying about whether or not to ask the hiring manager if you can take your vacation or how often you can work remotely, you are allowing yourself to be a victim to your mind drama.

This tip will allow you to be more present and build a relationship with the hiring manager from a place of value and service. Plus, I’ll share some helpful coaching strategies to help you quiet your mind, get your thoughts out and process what questions you need to ask at the appropriate time.
