Going into a job interview can be one the most daunting and nerve wrecking thing you do. But we think it doesn't have to be, and here are a few reasons why. 

1. You keep winning!

Don't worry about all the jobs you haven't gotten, focus on this one.  Walk into that place like you fear no rejection. It’s not even a question. Play some hype music and remember all you do is win. 

2. You are the best pea in the pod.

Talk about your banging skills and experience. Show them why you believe in yourself. Again, having confidence in yourself is key, and it keeps prospective employers keen.

3. Too big for your boots. Nah

Remember where you came from and who you are. What you are capable of and how much work you have put into to be right where you are today. , Don’t doubt yourself or your abilities. Don't play yourself. You did land this job interview. Own it. 

4. Get Sexy.

Think of all the ways you could contribute to building the success of the company. Speak with a healthy confidence, keeping in the back of your mind that someday you could run the world. Make them feel that you not being at the company is their worst mistake.

5. Make sure they are the right fit for you too!

A job interview is a two-part process, this is your chance to see if the company you are interviewing for is right for you. Don't settle, as a team where you feel more comfortable in will naturally bring out the best in you. 

And Last but not least. Keep Ya Head Up!

 Even if it doesn’t work out this time, you’ve got to remember there will be plenty more shots to make it in the industry. If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself of and try again. Simple

Don't worry, you got this!
