How to Stay Cool and Collected (Even When You Are Not)

by Katy Bruegenhemke | Feb 13, 2017

Presentation is just about everything, especially in a job interview setting. Keeping your cool while under pressure and striving to share your value with a prospective employer can be a tall order. But calming your nerves and presenting yourself as confident and on point can mean the difference between a job offer and disappointment. Here are four tips to help you keep calm, cool, and collected – even when you don’t feel like it.

It’s All In Your Breath

If you are the sort of person who gets nervous in an interview or jittery when put on the spot, take a moment to focus on your breathing. While you might be experiencing mile-a-minute thoughts and all kinds of nervous excitement on the inside, breathing slowly and steadily will help you maintain a collected presence. A steady breath can help slow your speech to a confident pace. It can also calm any jumpy limbs or shaky hands to come across as the confident individual you truly are.

Arrive Prepared

Nervous behavior is often the result of feeling unprepared. While there are plenty of opportunities for a hiring manager to spring some surprising questions on you, most interviews are relatively easy to prepare for. You should know your goals and your qualifications inside and out, but more importantly, you should be able to speak about them and apply them to the potential scenarios the hiring manager might ask about. Be prepared to talk about the job description in more detail and how your work history complements the requirements of the position. If you tense up at the thought of being put on the hot seat, having a list of questions about the job and the company helps to balance the conversation.

Practice Makes Perfect

If you know you tend to lose your cool when put on the spot, practice until you feel comfortable with your interview skills. Try setting up a mock interview with a recruiter to get comfortable with talking about yourself and the position in question. Practicing, with a friend or family member, or even in front of a mirror, can help. The more you get used to speaking about a topic, the easier it will be.

Talk While Standing

Taking an interview while standing can help you look and sound more confident, simply by the act of taking a more aggressive stance. If you have a phone interview, walk and talk. It can help you think clearly and relax as you speak about your qualifications. If you are meeting your interviewer in person, consider standing while you wait to meet them. Rather than rising from a sitting position to shake hands with the hiring manager, meet them on near equal footing by standing while you wait. Take a moment to stretch out and gather your energy before you start the interview. It can help get the jitters out of your system so you don’t come across as nervous.
