Good idea to have a shot of vodka before a job interview?!

Question: Good idea to have a shot of vodka before a job interview!?
I get really nervous, would u do this to calm down!? Not get drunk obviouslyWww@FoodAQ@Com

You're kidding, right!? Listen, kiddo, if you're needing to have a shot of anything before an interview then you're not using your natural self-soothing and coping mechanisms! Try some deep breathing and visualization: Breathing slowly and deeply from your diaphragm, imagine your interview!. When your anxiety rises, breathe thru it!. Imagine yourself acing the interview and answering all questions successfully!. Breate thru each question!. Develop a positive affirmation that you can repeat to yourself before the interview and at anxiety producing moments!. And, remember, its only an interview, not the end of the world!Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, it might give a bad impression on the interviewer because you have vodka stench in your mouth!. Eat a sweet if you need to calm down!. Don't drink oor eat something that can make you have a bad impression!. Don't follow if you don't feel good about it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Not a good idea!. As soon as you say, "hello," your vodka breath will waft over the interviewer!.

Save the vodka breath for 5 years from now, when you hate that job and wish you were elsewhere!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No - even if you brush your teeth, you can smell the alcohol!.
You better learn relax techniques like calm + breathing or meditation!. Look around what is on offer around where you live!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You need to find some relaxation techniques!. You can't go thru life taking a shot everytime your nervous!. What if they do a drug or alcohol test on you!? Definately not a good idea!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Don't do alcohol!.!.!. lowers your inhibitions!. You might say something you regret!.

Try some of the herbal products (Valerian or St!. Johns Wort)!.!.!. available at virtually any grocery store!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

sounds like a bad idea to me!. try other stress reducing activities like mediation or take a brisk walk!. don't show up reeking of booze, unless you really don't want the jobWww@FoodAQ@Com

if thats what you need to do the interview than go a head just make sure you bruxh your teath or pop some rea strong gum to chase itWww@FoodAQ@Com

Yea I probably have but not vodka Crown Royal LOL if that gets u calm enough to get through the interview and the job go for itWww@FoodAQ@Com

No, no, no! Alcohol is for fun, not work! Unless you're a wine taster!. A PAID wine taster, not a volunteer or whatever!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

How about some peppermint schapps instead!? Calms your nerves, smells like mint!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

if thats what you need to do the interviewWww@FoodAQ@Com
