I get so incredibly nervous at job interviews Watch

    With beta blockers I don't shake or show physical signs of nerves but my mind goes blank, I waffle on, I say 'erm' all the time. I sweat. I give one word answers. It's awful. Mortifying. I have only had a handful of interviews. One i actually got offered a part time position instead of the full time one I interviewed for so eventhough I felt I'd done terribly. For University interviews where it's just one person and a bit less formal I've never not be successful.

    But I've qualified as a social worker now and went for my first professional interview a few months ago and did horrendously. It was mortifying honestly. I have two interviews for next week. I am shaking just at the thought of them. I am very good at my job but some across so incompetent and nervous when interviewed.


    I am extremely extrovert and confident in day to day life.

    Any tips?
