How To Be Confident In An Interview: 3 Tips For Military Spouses

Interviews suck. The nerves. The sweaty palms. The sweaty pits. The fumbling over your words.

You can sometimes avoid them until…Oh no… it’s PCS time. You know, that time you have to move across the country and find a new house, new doctor, new dentist, new school, new friends… and a new JOB?

Oh great, another job search, interview process, and eternal wait to be hired to finally start making money again.

It takes so much time and energy to put yourself out there over and over. Once you’ve prepared and sent our resumes, you still have survive (and rock) that dreaded interview.

So how DO you stay calm, saavy and confident in an interview?

Last year, Life Works Families Blog asked me to guest post for them on the topic of interviews. Life Works Families is an employment support organization for military spouses and partners of British Military members.

So I wrote a piece called “How To Be Confident In An Interview: 3 Tips For Success When Job Hunting Again” and I’d love for you to get the tips I shared!

Questions I’ll answer:

  • If you’ve been out of the workforce, what skills do you have to offer?
  • What should you wear to the interview?
  • How should you prepare for the interview?

Head over to the Life Works Families Blog,  get the answers and learn how to be confident in an interview!

I find it nerve racking to go in for a job interview! You would think as much as we move around and how often my job has to change I would be use to interviews by now. I guess I get nervous because I think companies may not hire me because I am military and they know I will be moving again soon.

I’m struggling right now to find a job. I have a great degree from a good school and can’t find anything in our new duty station. It’s ridiculous to me that this happens all the time. Mil spouses are the best employees! Ugh I guess the employers just aren’t on board

Hi Abby- I’m so sorry that you are having such a hard time finding a job! =( I don’t know what your field is, but I wonder if there are any virtual or work from home opportunities that are within your area of study? It is so tough to move around all the time. I’ll pray that the right thing comes your way soon!
