How can I cure my nervousness and stay confident for job interview???
I attended an interview a few days ago and it was my first interview, I had done my homework like knowing the company information and their management and so on. During the interview I was so nervous that I can't even speak properly, moreover I can't even related properly from what I had know about the company. Needless to say, I was not selected. I would like to hear from people who experienced this and how they overcome it?? I'm planning to attend a walk in interview that is going to be a few weeks later. I don't put high hopes on my next interview because it is going to be very competitive and also, it's an airline company but I want to give my best shot for it.
