I’m curious how ADHD professionals prepare for job interviews. Some interviews I’m really nailing it and other interviews I can’t find the right words to communicate properly.

I write out the top talking points I want to hit, any questions I want to ask, and bullet points of how to answer common interview questions or questions about the company itself. I've found that preparing beforehand stops me from word vomiting or getting so nervous that I get off track or forget what I wanted to say.

Same!! I also have a go to list of work experiences - e.g., achievements, challenges etc so I have that handy

Thinking about questions that are likely to come up, especially the ones I'm likely to stumble on in the moment. I also tend to visualize, practicing conversations in my head. This tends to happen in snippets, when I'm in the shower or driving or getting distracted from another task.

Writing down a list of questions to ask the interviewers is another thing I find incredibly valuable. It's essential to find out if the job and organization is the right fit for me.

Would really want some advice as well. Have had a couple of interviews and I think my adhd is getting in the way. Thanks in advance!

Practice in front of the mirror or practice with your family members. Also, I practice in my head a lot. I have become much better though at talking in front of audiences and in front of people. Yes, I drive myself crazy beforehand but I do so well you would never know i have anxiety and adhd.

I practice alot and I also do alot of research on the company I will be interviewing at and what they may ask in their interview. This really helps me to prepare and practice how I am going to answer beforehand.

I agree with all the comments above. Practice really does make perfect. I even practice interviews with friends sometimes on Zoom jsut to grt a little more practice.

I am in my second year as a attorney, I was a FL paralegal before law school and would eventually like to end up there again. I am in a very small rural area, pretty much only solos, and no FL solos appear to be hiring/expanding at this time.

Do you think experience as a DA or PD would be valuable, with my eye toward a future in FL? Both for the skills gained, and/or as a resume piece?

TY!
