How Do I Shield the Nerves Before an Interview?

Dear Experts, I always feel nervous and have a sense of panic prior to/during interviews. How do I conquer these feelings? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#380 Take a few deep breaths, and remember that you got the interview for a reason (your quality application). (@gradversity) Q#380 Practice answers to ?s that you're nervous about & come up w/ur own ?s for them based on ur must haves. (@juliaerickson) Q#380 Practice. Go on informational interviews to help become more comfortable in that type of situation. (@heatherhuhman) Q#380 Interview for positions you are not interested in to practice. Know your bkgrd. and be yourself! (@DebraWheatman) Q#380 The more you prepare, the more relaxed you should be. Prep your story and tell it brilliantly. (@beneubanks) Q#380 "Fake it 'til you make it". Keep internal sentences powerful & positive. Don't buy into fear-will overcome it. Breathe. (@DawnBugni) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
