Use your skills to overcome the fear!

Use your skills to overcome the fear!

Ok, you get to your destination a little early and you check in with who ever you need to and you find there are like 20 people in there for the same job. The walls close in on you even more and you second guess yourself, if you can top these potential employees also. DO NOT FEAR! You are more hungry they them and depending on your interview skills you can go in there with confidence and even though you do  not nail it, you have gained invaluable experience on others. When going through this process do not undermine yourself by going in there negative or defeated. The interviewer does this for a living and can see it on your face, body language, hand gestures and everything else. Remember you just did a lot of time, and you have conquered yourself, the biggest problem there is!!!!You have just lived with the worst type of people according to society on a daily basis and you came out and lived through it. Actually you have the upper hand, because you know how to control your body language and know how to speak with a correct tone, because where you just came from. The wrong tone, body language or wrong eye contact can get you in a wreck where bodily harm can be involved. This is no different, just use those skills you honed to nail this interview. Remember this is all a mindset and attitude. Trust me when I tell you this, you have skills from doing time that money cannot buy or teach……use them to your advantage. It will work, because the advantage you have in an interview is the same as talking with your boys on the yard. Be reassuring, confident and go in their with a humble attitude.
