Sometimes it’s difficult to know where the line exists between tooting your own horn and outright bragging. In an interview setting, it’s important to sell yourself, but it’s equally important to know the difference between confidence and cockiness.
It’s been said that most interviewers make their decision about an applicant within the first few minutes, and that all else that takes place during the rest of the interview is just a formality. With that in mind, a good first impression is vital. Confidence is key to making this good first impression. Don’t be afraid to speak about your accomplishments, but avoid coming across as if doing so required little effort.
