Dear Introvert Zone,
What is the best way to approach job interviews? I’ve always been able to make myself look good on paper. I got professional help putting my resume together, I have excellent writing skills and can write a very good cover letter. The trouble is when I actually have to go to a job interview. I wouldn’t say I suffer from a lack of confidence, I’m just not as good at presenting myself in person as I am on paper. When I’m asked questions I have trouble forming a good answer without having time to think about the answer. This is especially difficult when I’m asked a question I wasn’t expecting them to ask and even more difficult when there are several interviewers. Sometimes I avoid even looking for jobs just because I hate going to interviews so much. Anyone have any advice?
