Sometimes, no matter how much you prepare, you're just going to have a bad interview! I just wish someone had given me that nugget of advice when I was starting out.
If you're into fitness, as you're probably painfully aware, some days you can be really looking forward to a run / swim / workout. But when you start you just can't get into it! In these situations people generally have no problem classing it as an off day and moving on. But almost everyone expects to always be on their 'A' game when going for an interview. Obviously comparing going to the gym to an interview, the external pressures are completely different:
- Maybe you really need the money,
- Interviews are thin on the ground
- or you just really want the job!
