Job interviews are stressful. There is no getting around this. No matter how accomplished you are, how experienced, how qualified, interviews are high-stakes affairs, and a wicked case of nerves is to be expected.
Can meditation help?
It can, provided you still perform the rest of your due diligence. You still need relevant skills and experience. You still need to prepare. You still need to research the company, rehearse your answers, and be ready to prove yourself in challenge or test. And therein lies the real problem with interviews, and the real reason why meditation has something important to offer.
Even when we ARE prepared for a job interview, we often still fumble. Why? The answer: Pressure. Even the best of us crumble under pressure. And that’s where meditation can help. When you meditate, you slow down, and you calm down.
