How to stay relaxed in meetings with potential employers and when to make an accident at work claim against one
If you work for yourself, are a freelancer or are even just looking to make a move from the job that you are currently doing to something new, you may have to have a series of meetings with potential employers to see what you can offer each other.
These won’t be framed as interviews, potentially because you are supposed to be working out if you want to work with these people as much as they have to decide if they want to work with you, but it can still be nerve-wracking to go into a meeting with people you don’t know, and that you want to impress.
- Know what you want to talk about. To avoid getting flustered and struggling for things to say, it might be a good idea for you to make a few brief notes about things that you want to talk about in the meeting, listed in order of importance so that you don’t miss anything out when you are in the meeting.
- Know that the meeting is important for both parties. If you go in feeling as though you are in an interview then you are bound to be nervous about what is going to happen. If, however, you are sure that the meeting is just as important for the other party as it is for you, this should help you to keep calm.
- Listen. Instead of being worried and overthinking things throughout the meeting, make sure that you listen to what is being said, so that you can respond appropriately. This is a much better idea than just trying to satisfy your own agenda.
- Ask questions. If anything confuses you, make sure that you ask immediately what you need to, so that you understand. This will help to kill some of your nerves.
