I've been off work for the last couple of years and I'm now applying for jobs and starting the interview process. But it has me so stressed I feel ill and I've already cancelled one interview as it just felt like too much. I have no idea what's going on as I'm ordinarily a confident person and have good experience plus I'm no stranger to interviews as I've done a fair bit of contract work in my time. But I am struggling so much and just feel not ready. I've always been someone who is happy to step out of my comfort zone but now all I want to do is stay in my safety zone. I had one interview the other day that was terrible I was so un-confident. I went home and cried!
What at is going on? Has anyone else experienced this? It's new to me and I feel sick just thinking about it. It all seems too hard.
