    Even if I force it my voice sounds weak and I can't speak 100% clearly. I'm only seeking advice because I'm applying for jobs and don't want to go in stuttering and mixing my words up

    One of the main things is not to be afraid of pausing/taking your time. People often try to rush what they're saying and that's when they cock up. Think things through in your head, decide how you want to say it and then speak in a clear, medium pace manner. Obviously you can't be too slow or it'll just be wierd, but often you can take a bit more time than you think and still seem normal to others.

    I agree with the previous. Take your time talking. In my house everyone stutters but me so I understand how hard it must be for you but the trick is to take your time talking.

    Only practice makes perfect! Stick at it and you'll be fine.
