Fear can stop you in your tracks. Fear of failure within remote job interviews can stop you from performing and reduces the chance of being hired.

Visualise any negative outcomes from the interview and write them down. When you read your fears down, it helps to tackle them head-on.

When attending my first remote job interview, the main fear was having technical issues. You can reduce these fears by having a practice interview with a friend and make sure your internet is reliable, the room is well lit, your friend can see and hear you.  Taking action can often deal with any fears that we have.

After a 30-minute video call with a few friends and no technical issues, your confidence will rise.

In this episode of  the Remote Hive Podcast, learn how to cope with the fear of failure in remote job interviews.
