I would say my CV is pretty decent. I'm recent graduate with a first class degree in a pretty sought after subject (business) from a reputable uni, I've had an internship with a global company which gave me quite a lot of desirable skills like data analysis and excel, I worked every summer through uni, I volunteered during term time and I was involved in sports. I'm pretty good at writing cover letters and applications, so I get a decent amount of invitations to interview, but this is where I fall down. I research the company beforehand, prepare typical interview answers and try my hardest to be enthusiastic and friendly, but then it comes to the day and I just don't do myself justice. I'm not very articulate so I often struggle to find the words I'm looking for, the information I've researched so thoroughly just falls right out my head and I tend to start sentences without having a clue where they're going and hope I figure it out along the way. In my whole interview experience I've only ever had 2 successful interviews. I wouldn't even say I'm that nervous before them so I don't think it's panic that makes me lose my head. I'm a confident public speaker so I can't figure out why I turn into a blubbering idiot in interviews. Anyone have any tips for how you improved your interview technique, or is it just a case of keeping on practicing?
