Interviews: Confidence, Confidence!

Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.” – Amy Cuddy

It’s been a while since I wrote about the med school application process – Life’s been crazy busy on my end. I’ve had it on my mind for some time now, to share the important video below on body language, confidence, and power. These are all important when doing med school interviews, and just any interview in general.

I first watched this Ted Talk about 2 years ago and was moved and intrigued. Amy Cuddy’s message really resonated with me. I definitely agree with everything she says in this video and since then, have made it a point to share with anyone who cares to watch.

Before interviews (job or med school), I “power pose.” It’s something I do, and I find that it works! As a highly observant individual, I personally pay attention to a person’s body language and often rely on nonverbal communication. That said, I’m keenly aware of how important it is to “fake it till you become it.” Check out the video and let me know your thoughts.

Ciao!
