    No. I haven't had many interviews, but I always seem to do well once I calm down. Confidence does wonders. Trick yourself into not doubting yourself all the time. Once you get the job, you can toggle back on your self-criticism module.


    Okay. Maybe that only works for androids, but it's worth a shot.


    Haha. I'm not an andriod, though. I'm too dumb to know how dumb I am, which, in an odd way, works brilliantly. I think our leaders suffer the same blessing.


    Cheers!

    Thanks for the input. Confidence is a big thing for me. I guess the lack of confidence always leaves me tongue tied which can lead to me screwing up the interview

    Yes I screwed up a couple of them, but I have had more practice than you young kids.     I have always gone by the basic rule.....be truthful.  It is better for them to know what they are getting from the start.  It hasn't hampered me.
