I have a panel (5 people) interview scheduled for early next week for a Kindergarten position. I have been looking for my first teaching job for the last 4 years. In the interim, I sub for our public schools. Over the last 4 years, interviews have been VERY hard to come by, but I have gone on several. The problem is that I always seem to bomb them! I have great communication skills and I know what I want to say, but for some reason when I interview my mind goes completely blank. I over prepare ahead of time and practice questions/answers and try to be confident when I walk through the office door. But, my face gets red, I start to panic, and everything that I know about teaching, including all those key words and terms, seem to fly out of my brain. I feel myself mumbling and getting more and more flustered. Obviously, I always get a rejection. I am truly at my wit's end here. I need a job and have a gut feeling that this one would be perfect for me. However I am so nervous about the interview (especially with 5 people!), that I am even considering cancelling it. Does anyone else interview badly or get flustered in high pressure situations? Any feedback on how to cope when sitting in the interview chair?
