Interview techniques

I have problems speaking to people I do not know very well. I can think out reasonably sensible conversations in my head before an interview. But when it comes to interviews my mind totally blanks out. Is there any way I can be better at interviews. If anyone has any tips please help.

Re: Interview techniques

Finally...a question on one thing I am good at.

When I have an interview I pretend that I am the one doing the interviewing. I prepare myself the day before with all the questions that I want to know about the job. It ends up that I know more about them when I leave then they know about me.

It's also important to be prepared for the questions they always ask you..such as..
Why do you think you would be good in this position.
What are your best skills
What are your weakest skills

But really try the role play of being the interviewer. Its works for me every time. Walk in really confident (even if your a ball of nerves) and reach out to shake their hand before they take yours.
I am of course assuming this is an interview for a job. If it's for something other like disability or something still prepare yourself with questions you want to know.

Hope I helped..good luck..deb
