Feeling imposter syndrome? Consider whether you are clear about your best fit role. If not, learn more about each role and compare each with your strengths. When you find this sense of "fit," your confidence will inherently improve.

If you know your ideal role and still don't feel confident, get objective with your skillset (ie get feedback from past colleagues).

Where can you improve your confidence?
