- Someone at the organization likes you and thinks you have a chance to contribute. You've haven't been called in to be tortured -- you have a real shot at getting hired.
- If this interview doesn't work out, you will have another one. There are a lot of jobs out there.
- Every interviewing experience you have will prepare you to do better in the next one.
- The person sitting across from you was once sitting on the hot seat just like you, and they survived and got the job even though their voice trembled a bit and their knees knocked a little. Everyone's been through the situation and knows what it's like.
- Just like everyone else, this person interviewing you has friends and casual acquaintances with whom they hang out. They aren't always so formal. Try to connect with your interviewer on a human level, without being too goofy and informal.
