Pretend Your Job Interviewer Is an Old Friend to Be More Comfortable

Interviews tend to be awkward, perhaps nerve-wracking experiences. One simple trick to get more comfortable: Imagine you're old pals with the interviewers. Photo by GT AMSA.

That's the simple advice shared on Higher Perspective:

Before a job interview, imagine yourself as being old pals with your interviewers. That puts you in a better, more comfortable position. You're more likely to take charge and your comfort will be noticed.

If you can't force yourself to believe or imagine that you're friends, perhaps convince yourself from the start that you really like the interviewers and they're rooting for you. It can also help to have a mock interview with an actual friend.
