Dream job interview!
I was contacted by a recruiter about 8 months ago for something I had considered my dream job. The interview with the company went very well. However, taking the position would have required relocation. With COVID wreaking havoc on schools, I didn't feel right uprooting my family without the right supports in place for my child. Since that time, the recruiter reached out a second time in late fall, which was still COVID dicey, and now again a few weeks ago with a slight change in the role. With the uptick in optimism the pandemic has an end in sight, I am going to re-interview with the company next week. The little voice inside my head is saying they want me on their team as much as I want to join them. The confidence of my chances of success are paired with imposter syndrome and failing to secure the opportunity of a lifetime. I keep repeating to myself, "deep breath, be authentic, and take one moment at a time." Any advice to help shore up my confidence without appearing arrogant or ingenuine would be warmly appreciated.
