TISA gets appeal for help from young IPWS facing interviews (and especially GD). Let us say, there is a discrimination against stammerers in interview (even elsewhere). But let us remember that everybody faces somekind of discrimination or other all the time in society- based on dialect, caste, dress, body shape, religion, age, gender, college you passed from etc. etc. Let us focus on solutions rather than coming thru as a ‘cry baby’. Here are few things to remember:
1. Everyone stammers under stress to varying degrees- Stammering alone would rarely get you disqualified. As Keith says, your body language contributes a lot. If you react with shame and fear, to your stammering, chances are interviewer will also take a similar view of your communication. If you just carry on, chances are, no one will take notice of it.
2. You are being assessed on a large variety of criteria in an interview- communication is just one of them. You can make up by working hard on other aspects; check this link for these ‘other variables’:
3. Law of probability says that if I attempt 10 interviews, I will not get selected in all ten. May be five- if the ‘dice’ is not weighted for or against me. Brad Cohen (after whom the famous motivational movie “Front of the class” is made), failed first 24 interviews before getting selected as a teacher, his first job! If you want something deeply, you will not care how many attempts it takes.
So, get up and get going..
