This week, 2 candidates went in front of the client to interview.
Both were on a relatively equal playing field with experience and skill set.
Candidate 1, the hiring manager passed on.
Candidate 2, they’re moving forward to the next round.
Feedback was that the 2nd was able to explain their work with confidence and exuberance.
Even if there was a different in opinion or maybe the solution wasn’t 100% correct, I don’t get the impression this mattered all that much.
I find that this type of confidence scenario often occurs.
Are there any tips to share on how you might build self confidence prior to going to an interview?
