You might not have George’s fame, fortune, and good looks, but you can go into every interview with the mindset that he cites as being critical to his success in his industry:
“I had to stop going to auditions thinking, ‘Oh, I hope they like me.’ I had to go in thinking I was the answer to their problem. You could feel the difference in the room immediately.”
Success in job interviews starts with the confidence that can only come from 1) preparation; 2) mastery of your message; and 3) understanding of your value in that role to that company facing its current challenges.
Equally important is shifting your mindset so you think of the interview as a business discussion and problem-solving session – not as an inquisition. With that shift, interviewing can actually be enjoyable! Try it and see.
