After all, interviews can trigger a lot of our top fears, like fear of failure or success, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of public speaking, fear of change, and fear of being judged.

Feeling a bit nervous because it’s been a while since your last interview? Maybe there’s a lot of competition? Or perhaps public speaking is not your thing? Or you’re worried about connecting during an online interview? Or it’s an internal interview and you’re not sure what you should or shouldn’t say?

When our minds are focused on the pressure, it can make preparing for an interview challenging. Have no fear Leap Coaching can support you to conquer those interview jitters and ace your interview.
