Do you get nervous when you do job interviews?

How many of you choke or get nervous when you do a job interview? Is it the fear that you won't get hired? The fear that you don't know which words to say? The fear of meeting with the interviewer that you might be turned down?

I dont really get nervous because if i do it would reflect on how i will perform during the interview. I try to clam myself and think positive. If i think about mayeb i wont get hired, then il definitely wont get hired witht hat thought in my head. Its easy to do a good interview when you are confident because it will show. Just dont start becoming cocky. :)

I knew being nervous wont help me.. so i tried to relax so i must have that confidence while the interview is going on.. I ony got nervous when i am infront of more people and do the presentation of a certain report.

I absolutely hate going out on job interviews. I always get sooo nervous. I worry about what I look like and that what I'm dressed like is good enough. Even though I know that I'm dressed well. Then there's the meeting of the person who's gonna be hiring and I worry what they think and if they lke me or not. I worr that I'll have the right answers to their questions. I could go on for a long time when it comes to all of the worries that go through my head.

Amazingly enough I have never been one to get nervous about a job interview. I just relax and go with it because I think they can ask all the clever "what if" questions in the world but in the end either they connect with you or not. So everyone relax! :-)
