Do you have it? If not, how can you get more of it?
I think hiring managers (and recruiters) can pick up on your confidence pretty quickly during an interview.
Even if you’re not completely qualified, your exuberance and energy can go a long way, especially if you can articulate how you would solve a problem that you haven’t experienced before.
By continuing to practice solving various problems and learning the process to do so, your confidence will build.
Since we’re in the NBA playoffs in the U.S., a little blurb on confidence.
NBA legend Larry Bird shot 500 free throws every morning before school, and then during his NBA career, he made ~90% of those, and a stunning 93% in the 1989-1990 season.
When the game was on the line, Larry Legend, was often called upon.
Practice builds confidence…
