73% of job seekers describe finding a job as one of the most stressful experiences in life.
There are many layers of recruitment. While each step can be nerve-wracking, interviews tend to cause the most nervousness as there is nothing in between you and your potential employer to protect you. But that feeling of anxiety is your body’s natural way of dealing with a stressful situation.
Originating from the caveman days, nerves prepare you for a fight-or-flight situation. They flood the body with excess adrenaline, so your muscles react quicker.
Back in the caveman days, these episodes usually occurred when faced with a threat like a tiger. Today, we often feel nerves when faced with another human being who has power over you.
As it is a natural survival technique, interview nerves can be managed before and during an interview to avoid any slip-ups. Read this article by WikiJob to help you overcome interview nerves.
