How to deal with nerves when waiting to hear back from an interview
Waiting to hear back after an interview for a job that you really desperately want can be very difficult, even painful. There are likely to be just a couple of jobs out there that you really desperately want, and if you are invited for an interview this can seem like the be all and end all of your career at this time.
You should be aware that if you don’t get the job there are likely to be other opportunities in the future which feel just as important, so not to feel too let down, but this doesn’t help to stop the nerves whilst you are waiting to find out if you have the job or not.
- Do other things. Perhaps this job may be the only thing that you really want at the moment, but sadly you are going to have to wait either way, and if you aren’t productive you will just drive yourself mad. Make sure that you have plenty of things to do in the days that follow your interview so that you are not just sitting around waiting the whole time.
- Relax. Try to take some time for you and take baths, get plenty of sleep or watch movies. Anything that you enjoy that you might not get to do as much of if you do get the job. This should help you to enjoy the moment you are in, rather than obsess about the next one.
- Keep applying for jobs. If this was a very prestigious position then you have to accept that your chances of getting the job might not be as high as you would like. In this case you should keep applying for other jobs, so that you have back-up plans if you don’t get it.
- Call the employer. It may be worth calling the employer to check up on how the interview process is going and when you are likely to hear something back. This can help you to relax on the days that you aren’t expecting to hear anything.
