Do Hiring Managers Understand Anxiety?

0

Dear Experts,

I had an interview this morning and was extremely nervous during the entire process. My anxiety was through the roof! My voice was cracking and I was sweating pretty bad. However, my responses to her questions were sensible so we were able to generate a very nice dialogue. But she had to of noticed how nervous I was!

Will she hold this against me? My hope is she’ll understand my anxiety was a reflection of how vital this job opportunity is to me. Should I follow up with her and acknowledge this is bothering me?

Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:

Q#479 Don’t worry. Employers shouldn’t hold you accountable for being nervous. It probably wasn’t as bad as you thought. (@gradversity)

Q#479 Wouldn’t bring it up after, but if you’re *that* nervous for interview they will question your strength for job. (@EmilyBennington)

Q#479 Wouldn’t hurt to mention, but most won’t hold it against you. Interviewing hardly ever=job performance. (@beneubanks)
