Prepping for an interview? Worried that you're not qualified? Big surprise, that happens to almost all of us. I was in a conversation with my daughter the other day (she's a mechanical engineer and new manager). She was convinced she didn't have what she needed to be successful, and yet she's frequently asked to take on more by her company president.
In this article, the author's focus is on a job interview. In my example above, it's day to day. And, the root cause is the same, we often feel like we're not good enough, resulting in anxiety and presenting a persona that's really not you.
To overcome this anxiety, the author recommends practice, relaxation, and preparation. Really good advice for most situations in life.
Ultimately, the best way to dispel self-doubt, insecurity, and trepidation during the interview process is to understand the needs of the organization and hiring manager by putting yourself in their shoes. By articulating the team’s needs as you understand them, and telling a story of how you’ve solved similar problems, you’ll build your confidence and place yourself head-and-shoulders above the competition.
