Getting Stressed Before Interview

I am about to have my second in-person interview after I graduated from school. This time is a coordinator position with Defence Construction Canada. I personally do not have much experience with the company either working experience. Have anyone had an interview with this company before? If yes, can you share some tips with me or what should I prepare? Thank you so much.

I haven't worked for them but just Relax breathe and realize that they brought you in for a reason, they see something

It's perfectly normal no need to fight it. Focus on the task at hand, preparing for the interview...etc and you will be fine. The more interviews you do the better you will get.

People are looking to know more about you, not a modified version of you. Be calm, relaxed and most important YOURSELF. What you are feeling is perfectly normal but for someone who has been on the otherside interviewing 100s if not 1000s so far in my career, my biggest piece of advise to you is be yourself, be honest, be humble but show them tell them why you feel you are a strong candidate.

The stress starts after you get the job. An interview is something to look forward to. You get to talk about you.

what i tend to do in interviews, is try to steer the interview into more conversational than transactional. I get super nervous when its question... answer...question.. answer. If you steer towards conversational, question are much easier to answer, and builds a connection between you and the interviewer.

Good advice, to a certain point. Remember you are selling yourself so you don't want to say things like you "don't like working in teams" or you are "lazy" etc.
