Change your point of view: Once you're armed with information about the company and your likely interviewer and you've trained yourself to talk about your work history in a way that is suited to the specific job and the issues likely to arise—step back and take a breather. Reeves suggests repeating a simple mantra: "I'm qualified, I want to do it, and I'm the best person to do this job," for example. Consider the interview from the employer's point of view: They've checked out your résumé and responded positively to it. They want this to work out. A hire is the successful intersection of two searches, Reeves says—your search for work, and the company's search for the right worker.
