4 Things to Practice in Advance of an Interview


Every interview always starts with introductions - and I've seen so many candidates struggle to talk about themselves in relevant ways.

To help yourself rehearse, try one of the following:
  1. Practice with your most honest friends
  2. Practice by recording a video of yourself
  3. Practice with a timer / stop watch
  4. Practice while having voice-to-text enabled on your phone/computer
A friend will tell you when you are rambling, but in the other 3 cases that's what you want to look out for. Simply telling yourself "don't ramble" won't help. Listen to yourself, so you can see where you start unnecessarily repeating yourself.
