I've been on three interviews this summer, my performance at each of them getting progressively worse. I get so hyped up and nervous about them that its crippling. It does not matter how many answers to potential questions I go through in my head or how many times I practice answering questions to myself prior to an interview, I always do miserably. I freeze up, ramble, back track to clarify my rambling (which never works), and usually just stop mid-sentence when I realize that I've completely lost the interviewer. I've got to the point where I just want to beg the interviewer to let me in the door and tell them that they won't be sorry. I'm GREAT with kids, I have great ideas, I have great attributes, I'm such a hard worker, and have great references, but I have no luck expressing any of the above. I feel like giving up! How am I ever going to get a job when I can't get past an easy enough interview?? Has anyone else had this problem? Any tips? Any books I can read that may help? I'm sick of humiliating myself.
