When an interview is coming up, have you noticed your divine connection fading?
Interviews are one of the biggest culprits to push us out of alignment with our higher self.
Instead, the voices of our ego, inner critic, and others who may not have our back start to become louder. We push. We try harder. This traditional approach often works against us, causes more tension, and results in very few, if any, career triumphs. With so much often at risk in an interview, it is tempting in our preparation to give in to the "shoulds" and the "have-to's", instead of listening actively to our intuition.
I say “us” because even though I’ve been coaching other women on interviewing for years, I also fall into this trap. When I don’t use the Upgrade My Interview method, I find myself feeling resistance, struggle, and high stress about interviews. The pressure and discomfort starts to get to me. I skip over tapping into all the amazing knowledge, experience, and lessons that I’ve learned along my spiritual journey. And when I do that, my interview performance suffers.
Interviews can greatly challenge us to stay aligned with our inner being and trust that everything is working out for our highest good. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Less Interview Stress = More Interview Success
Most of us never had a class about interviewing and tend to rely on internet searches to get it right. Jumping to googling what to say is often the WRONG first step. If we did get some instruction, it was given without teaching us how to manage our mindset, body language, and energy for interview success. Yet so much current behavioral and social science research shows us these three areas play a key role in how others perceive our professional presence, especially in high stakes situations.
It is time you learn how to leverage them and discover the Upgrade My Interview method.
Mastering sharing our professional value with ease and deep confidence when it matters most is a powerful life skill. My holistic approach to upgrading your interview begins with strengthening your understanding of how your nonverbal communication (that happens in your mindset, body language, and energy) affects the message and impression others are receiving.
I am excited to bring you the 5 Day Upgrade My Interview Adventure that will offer you game-changing information about the art and science of interviewing. I've put it together as an initial next best step for professional women with a holistic or spiritual side that want to shine in the hot seat every time.
It is my intention that this 5 Day UMI Adventure brings you several quick wins for creating and sustaining a magnetic, engaging presence when talking about yourself.
Representing your best, authentic self in every interview is a LEARNABLE skill. Read that again.
By participating fully, you will notice a beneficial shift in how you prepare and present yourself for career situations where the stakes are high, especially interviews. As you complete the activities for reflection and take the recommended daily actions, you will learn how to start transforming interview stress to success.
And what about when rejection or only hearing crickets after an interview comes along? With so many broken workforce systems, bias hiring decisions being made, and outdated assessment tools being used, it can be soul-crushing trying to move forward in our careers. Although there is important progress happening, women continue to be underrepresented at every level in the world of work.
However, by joining the UMI 5 Day Adventure or passing it on to a friend, you are doing your share of helping to be part of the much needed change.
I am so impressed by your dedication to your future at work and support of sharing this information with other spiritually minded, professional women. It is a huge reason why I am including a bonus day of content, tips, and tools in the UMI 5 Day Adventure. It will share with you some of my top, holistic guidance on how to recover faster from the exhaustion of interviewing as well as what to do when rejection or not getting the outcome we want happens.
The world of work needs your gifts. I want to do all I can to make sure every spiritually activated woman does not stay stuck or held back.
Do you like bonuses? I also am tossing in a gift for those that fully complete the 5 Day Upgrade My Interview Challenge! I love encouraging you to keep up your Upgrade My Interview Journey or giving you a chance to pass on the good stuff to someone you care about.
