Nerves during intereview
I hope someone can give me advice. I am in a office manager position for a company I have been with for over 10 years. I have a Bachelors Degree, am a great worker, dedicated, and will do anything I can for the success of the company. I started at the ground level and continue to move up only through networking and through people knowing my dedication to the company. There are other areas of the company (corporation) that I know I could do, that would put me in a professional position, and of course that could raise my salary three fold.
My problem is I can not interview! This company does the round table interview, along with the rating scale of the person they are interviewing. The minute I know I am going to be interviewed I stress. Once being interviewed my voice shakes, I can not think, and I fee intimidated. Basically I feel like a failure and do not know how to overcome.
The executives who know me and have seen me work are shocked and can not believe I have this issue when I interview. They think I am stretching the truth when I tell them about my interviews. One was recently about someone they interviewed and how the person was in a "frozen state" I told him that is what I do and he was shocked, he could not believe that since I am very self confident.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to overcome this issue?
