welcome to health care magic
probably you are suffering from an anxiety disorder. Standard treatment includes counselling, and medicines like paroxetine, sertraline, fluoxetine etc. But these medicines may take 6-8 weeks to provide a relief. For an interview you can not use anxiolytics like alprazolam as they will make you drowsy. A better alternative is propranolol (market name-inderal) 10 mg before the interview, (but if you have any other medical illness then it should not be used without consultation with doctor). Inderal will be very helpful in relieving stress of interview by stopping symptoms of nervousness. Meanwhile you should consult a nearby psychiatrist for treatment of anxiety disorder.
best of luck
