Don't show that you are intimidated, but control the way you react.Sit firmly in your chair, take deep breaths, and answer the questions calmly and at your own pace.Traditional productivity books—written by men—barely touch the tangle of cultural pressures that women feel when facing down a to-do list.We've all had those interviewers that intimidate us--often on purpose. And, unless you do something about it, it’s always there at the back of your mind, a constant worry.
But I finally decided to get to the bottom of my lack of confidence so I could actually live life, instead of hoping it wouldn’t notice me.
Control Your Reaction Intimidating interviewers won't smile, won't react, and won't do anything to let you know if you're doing well or not.
They may use subtle scare tactics, or they'll rapid-fire questions at you.
Often the interviewer is just trying to see how you'll handle yourself under pressure.
Prepare for Negative Responses If the interviewer is trying to see how you handle negative feedback, they may say things like "I've never heard a worse answer to that question before." Well, truth be told, they wouldn't tell you if they had heard a worse answer, but they're trying to intimidate and scare you.
