I have an interview next monday for an internal promotion. I'm usually quite good at interviews - if I make it to a face to face interview, I typically get the offer. But this time, I'd say that's not very likely. Most, if not all of the other people I know who are going for this position have more industry experience than me, have worked for the company longer, and in closer proximity to the people conducting the hiring.
I'm definitely qualified enough and have bags of relevant experience outside the company, but I know that industry experience will weigh more heavily in the eyes of those making the decision.
Basically I applied for experience and to be seen to be applying, I have no expectations of getting the job. I don't even really want it, I love the job I have now and the money isn't hugely different. I thought that this would at least mean I'd be relaxed about the whole thing, but the reality is I'm nervous as fuck. I have an entire week to go and I already feel sick. I'm not entirely sure why, but I thought that maybe asking for tips in this very specific scenario might help my nerves.
The role is basically what I already do, but more, and I basically know the interview will be almost identical to the one I did for this job, just longer or more specific. I really don't know why I feel so fucking anxious about it.
Failing that, general interview technique thread?
