7 Mindfulness and Communications Tips That Helped Me Get Great Jobs!

Looking for a job? Worried about the interview? This article has unique, mindfulness based job interview tips I’ve learned from actual interviews, that help you stand out from the competition,
Assuming you and several others are more or less equally qualified for a job, the person they like the most will get the offer. The person they feel the best about is a great advantage. That’s the person they want on their team. Your job in the interview is to be that person. In fact, it’s easy to see how someone less-qualified could get the offer if they felt much better about that person than the more qualified candidate.
This article gives specific advice you won’t find other places causes you can’t rehearse answers to questions to get this part right. It’s about who you are, not what you know. If you’re a good person, who wants to do a good job, is well qualified, and wants to be successful in your career — this advice is golden. You can’t fake it to make it using these techniques, but if you can be authentic, present, and use this guidance, they are gonna want you on the payroll ASAP.

The way I talk about this in the Langauge of Mindfulness process is “if you want to be mindful when you are under stress, you have to practice when you’re not. “ There’s a lot to say about the “how” but in truth, it’s really simple. Just practice. If you don’t have mindfulness, meditation, yoga, or other practice that allows you to slow down a bit, notice what’s actually going on in your world, and reflect on how you relate to things — start one. You can still benefit from the tips here, but when combined with a foundation in mindfulness, they take you to an entirely new level. There are a lot of online resources that can help you get started. I also am available for 1:1 coaching.
How I Realized Mindfulness Was Helping Me Ace the Interview
In my last job interview, I walked away feeling great about the interview, and evidently, they thought so too as I got the offer right away. And I was aware that this was no accident.
