Tackling the “Jitters” before your first job interview:

Here are some helpful tips to help you to stay calm for your first job interview

  ✔️Make sure to get enough sleep the night before your interview. About 6-8 hours of 

sleep is essential for promoting a positive mood, soothing the nervous system, and boosting concentration, all of which is extremely important for doing well on the next job interview. Additionally, make sure to avoid caffeine and exercise if possible. You want to feel relaxed when talking to a potential employer!

✔️Another important relaxing technique is to try popping in some headphones. You can choose to listen to your favorite music to get your heart pumping and help calm nerves. To specifically manage anxiety, you can try squeezing stress balls, counting to ten and also wearing accommodations such as headsets to battle sensory challenges.

✔️Participating in a break or lounge area to practice calmness is a great way to feel empowered and to also settle in various sensory challenges. Yoga, practicing mindfulness and breathing deeply can also help to promote calmness before a big interview. For your reference, I have listed a few apps that may guide your journey of practicing mindfulness and meditation techniques: Aura, Insight Timer, Headspace, and Simple Habit.

Remember: This list does not provide all the solutions, so please only consider them as tips! 😊

Giving Tuesday 2020

In early 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Earth to Autism had to cancel all of its scheduled events and fundraising. We’ve spent much of the year waiting for conditions to improve so that we can safely resume working toward achieving our mission of putting adults with Autism to work in green industries. Unfortunately, things are still not safe for us to gather so we are pivoting toward providing online services for our clients. We need your help to raise the funds necessary to upgrade our capacity to provide online services to our clients. We greatly appreciate your support as we work to find creative ways to continue to provide support to adults with Autism in our community using an online platform. Please consider supporting Earth to Autism by sharing your talents, making a monetary contribution, or both! Every little bit helps! Thank you in advance for your support! #bethechange #earthtoautism #autism #givingtuesday2020
