I interviewed in mock interviews several soon to be graduates of Skidmore College. All of them possessed a trait I look for in any viable candidate – inner conceit.
What is inner conceit? It is knowing you can do the job. It’s also knowing that you feel comfortable being who you are in front of a stranger who is interviewing you. Lastly, it’s being confident enough not to sound over-confident, but competent.
Train yourself to be inner-conceited, and you will impress the people interviewing you, and make people realize that you are what your resume says you are.
