You'll ultimately need to figure out how to both psych yourself up before an interview, but also not overdo it. For some people that's breathing (meditation), others it is a simple warmup exercise with a friend or family member. You might look in a mirror and say "you got this". I find confidence for most is being in the mindset that it's just any other conversation about work. You have them all the time, so why would this be any different? Another thing that helps me is that I'm not the one being interviewed, they are the ones. I can pick from any place and likely get the job. They need to prove they are the place for me. Don't be an ass during the interview, but they need you, more than you need them. Find out if the fit is mutual.

There are many websites that provide commonly asked interview questions. You can also look on Glassdoor to see if others have posted interview questions from the specific company. If I were you, I would download a couple of those and come up with answers to those question. This will do a few things... (1) You will realize you do have good answers to these questions. It will help build your confidence. (2) You won't have to think about finding a way to answer these questions in the interview because you've already considered how to answer them. You will look more confident and able to think on your feet. (3) Even if they ask you different questions, the exercise will better prepare you answer other questions, especially if they are somewhat related. You will be better prepared.

What kind of prep do you do? I have a worksheet if you're interested. A recruiter advised me to ask early in the interview what part of your application caught their eye. That gives you a quality to emphasize and circle back to. Also remind yourself, if you got an interview, you've probably already beat 95%+ of the other applicants.

This is super helpful 👏 Also do you mind sharing the worksheet you talked about? Thank you.

I look through my resume and pull milestones or successes and write them all out in list form, particularly ones that are applicable to the new position. Additionally, I look at the required/preferred qualifications and make bullet notes of example experiences for each one. I take these notes with me to the interview.

It's OK to have an imposter syndrome, the best and highly successful people also have it. Just try and make sure it's not reflected in your interview and don't worry too much about it.

I've personally learn how to coexist with imposter syndrome. I keep myself engaged in things I as very bad at (coding, or playing guitar) so it's easy to realize how good I am at other things. It has worked as mental preparation for interviews, so far.

It’s an interview both ways. You are interviewing them as well and the market is competitive for talented people like yourself! Don’t forget, it’s a candidates market out there currently! You may not know the answer to every question which is okay - have relatable examples ready of something similar.
