Introverts Can Overcome Shyness During Panel Interviews

Panel interviews for health care positions are often stressful but even introverted candidates can reduce anxiety, say NYIT School of Health Professions nursing faculty members Carol Caico, Ph.D., CS, NP and Pam Treister, MSN, CNS, RN, in Health Callings. “To an introvert the stress is magnified and the fear they experience may result in cancelled interviews or poor performance,” says Caico, assistant professor of nursing, who advises anxious interview candidates to consider relaxation techniques or cognitive therapy to overcome severe anxiety. Treister, a clinical instructor, says  “practice is even more essential," and using a tape recorder to practice answering questions can help introverts reduce their fears.
