When it comes to new experiences, it's always normal as a human being to experience some anxiety; so don't feel bad about it!
I remember many times when I walked into an unfamiliar office for an interview and how the butterflies in my stomach were dancing to hip hop music right there in my stomach to the point where I started feeling sick!
Think about it; you've filled out a Wal mart application, you've been considered for a job, and now all you have to do is pass the interview and a few other formalities and you're in. No pressure, right?
By the way, if you've submitted a job application wait 2 weeks or so and if you dion't get a call back by then, I suggest you visit the store you want to work at and inquire about the status of your application; this shows that you're interested, and no one can fault you for that.
By preparing yourself for the interview and following through the way you are expected to, you will have erased one more of the Walmart job openings at that particular store and you'll be on your way to success.
Over time I've learned to control my job finding nervousness somewhat, and here are some tips I can recommend to make that Wal Mart job yours and pass the interview with flying colors:
- Conduct some research about how Walmart careers and where you think you fit in according to your qualifications and strengths as well as your experience in the retail or related field.
It would be completely awkward to go into a job interview without even knowing what position you are interested in, and why. Find out about other careers at Walmart such as pharmacist jobs, managerial positions, etc.
Go into the interview with your goals clearly in your mind and you'll make a great, lasting first impression.
- Time your arrival so that you get there at least 15 minutes early, preferably 30 minutes, and walk in at the 10 minute mark.
An easy way to become over-anxious and become nervous to the point where it will affect your interview is to get to the interview even 1 minute late!
- Dress conservatively! In today's society it isn't uncommon to see someone with ten earrings across the top of their earlobes.
If you're thinking this is the time to express your individuality by wearing those fashionable gold pants and glittery shirt or blouse, you're wrong unless you're in the fashion industry!
People who conduct hiring, regardless of federal laws pertaining to equal rights, want to hire people they perceive as "normal."
So, my advice is to appear as plain as possible, then when you're hired, express your individuality however you want to as long as you adhere to the company's guidelines.
Finally, one of the biggest mistakes people make after filling out a Walmart online job application is to think it's just any other job because it's a large, well-known company with hundreds of thousands of employees.
Approach your Walmart job interview as if it's the last job on earth, then put all your effort into interview preparation, and you'll give yourself the best chance at getting hired.
