7 thoughts we have all had in a job interview

*clammy hands*

THE JOB INTERVIEW. It’s never, ever an easy process – but for some of us it’s downright torture.

If you’re that way inclined, here are some familiar thoughts you might recognise:

1. “I wish I didn’t wear this outfit”

Every time.

2. “There are probably 17 typos on the first page of my CV”

Should have re-read it a few more times.

3. “I’m making weird amounts of eye contact”

4. “Am I dangerously underqualified for this role?”

The doubts. The crippling doubts about basic abilities.

5. “I can’t believe I didn’t research this job more”

6. “I am absolutely winging this”

You’re shocked at your new found ability to come up with nonsense on the spot.

7. “How can I tell everyone this went well?”

As you leave, all thoughts turn to how this can be spun into “the best interview I’ve ever done.”
