Job Interview Voice Warm Up

Before going into your job interview, it’s important to warm up your voice. Here are a few sentences to read aloud with energy and enthusiasm in preparation for your interview. I recommend that you do these at home before you leave to go to your interview.

You Should:

Spend 10-15 minutes repeating these sentences

Aim to balance speech clarity (speaking precisely) with vocal power (speaking loudly). Say these sentences louder than your normal speaking voice

Say the sentences with energy and passion to get into the right mindset for your interview

I am ready for this job.

Today is my opportunity to shine.

I have complete confidence in myself and my abilities.

I am more than ready for this interview.

I speak with clarity, confidence and precision.

If I forget what to say, I breathe, remember where I was, and keep going.

It’s effortless and simple to speak well.

My voice has power and authority.

I’m focused and ready for any question asked of me.

Whenever I am asked a tough question, my answer is spontaneous and effortless.

I’m going to surprise myself by how confident I am during this interview.

My speech is flowing and clear as I showcase my abilities.

It is easy for me to breathe fully and comfortably as I present my skills and experience.

This job interview is a walk in the park for me.

When I finish the interview, I’m going to say ‘Wow! That was so much easier than I expected!’

I’ll focus on explaining my strengths, therefore I know that I will do myself justice in every way.

I’ll make relaxed eye contact with the interviewers: This creates a professional impression.

As I walk into the room I will hold myself high with good body posture.

I will sit upright with good body posture.

I am the champ!

I am the king of kings!

I am the best of the best!

Everyone else watch out because I’m coming!
