Advice From a Future Staffing Specialist?

As a Staffing Specialist, I always take pride on being fair, giving all candidates proper consideration, and also helping the candidate I’m interviewing feel at ease.  But there are times when I am the one who isn’t at ease and a little nervous when interviewing.  I ran across a video today that’s circulating around the web that puts me to shame!

I’m sure many of you have already seen this video but an 11 year old boy had an opportunity to interview the President and did an awesome job.   Politically affiliation aside, I think we can all agree that interviewing someone of his importance would be a nerve racking task (talk about an understatement).  The child’s advice?  ““Always stay calm. He’s a regular person and never think that he’s better than you, because you’re both the same.”  I’ll have to use that advice next time I’m feeling a bit uneasy.

Check out the video here:
