How do you cope with going to a job interview when anxiety might affect the job? Watch
I have an interview coming up which I am pretty well prepared for in terms of having completed the set task etc, but am really doubting whether I could actually successfully fulfill the role if I even get it (e.g. anxiety messes up my attendance and/or I end up crying and feeling really stressed the whole time until I quit)
I would say start part time voluntary and get used to being in a working environment, then move up from there. Vol you are still meant to show up, but you dont have the pressure of a paid job as you can quit. More experience you get then the more you will realise you can cope and will thus be less anxious.
If you do get the job, then just focus on the basics turning up, doing what you are told, making an effort, being polite etc and do it one day at a time. Sometimes peoples anxieties are about events that are highly unlikely.
There are various methods for trying to lessen in work anxiety, but get the job offer first and dont think beyond that.
