Why people fail interviews
2 out of 3 people fail job interviews even before they open their mouth.
About 90% of people come away from an interview kicking themselves because they know they should have performed better had it not been for their nerves or anxiety, and it is so easy to deal with, given a little know-how, according to David Wilkinson, author, academic and originator of The Fear Course, http://www.fearcourse.com.
80% of the decision to hire someone is based on what the interviewers see and hear on the day and only about 20% is based on what is in your CV.
In short success in a job interview comes down to three things:
1. Do you come across as a competent person?
2. Do you appear to be easy to get on with? And,
3. Do you come across as someone who will fit in with their team?
“Just think about your perception of what a competent person looks and behaves like. I bet that perception does not include a nervous or anxious person. Competent includes being confident, composed and looking comfortable with your subject area.” States Wilkinson from The Fear Course, http://www.fearcourse.com.
