Before you focus on saying the right thing, focus on your presence.
Start with you
The people who interview you will remember how you made them feel.
Think about your body language.
How can you change the energy of the room?
We are what we do
Walk into an interview like you would walk into a social work visit:
Calm, Centered, Grounded.
Practice regulating your breath
Benefits of a social work interview
The people interviewing you are social workers
They want to find a candidate so they want you to do your best
Interviews don't have to be scary
If you view an interview as practice for a home visit, or for chairing a meeting, you can helpfully reframe this to reduce anxiety.
