Job interview nightmares: The public test
My nightmare came when I was a naive 19-year-old going for my second job as a consultant/sales person with a retirement planning company.
It was a group interview situation where they did a little seminar and then they asked us to each stand up and tell the other candidates why we were better suited to the job and why we were going to get the job over them!
Two people walked out before having to speak and I was one of the last people called.
I quickly got over my fear of public speaking and I got the job.
Before I had my two gorgeous boys I had a successful sales career and I never worried about having to speak in front of people again.
