How do you get past imposter syndrome? Someone more senior than me is encouraging me to apply to a role that I feel totally unqualified for. I hate my current job, but I’m good at it and am scared to fail the interview for this new position. I feel like if it doesn’t work out I’m letting the people who support me down :(

Do you want the job? Respect the person encouraging you? If yes, go for it. You don’t get past imposter syndrome, you just accept it is human and drown it out. Failing an interview is not possible if you show up. It may go great or not but it’s movement in a direction you want to go. Imagine not going for it. Talk to person encouraging you to learn more and why they think you’d be a good fit. Then embrace it and totally go for it. I’ve gotten job offers when I thought I’d tanked the interview and others where I totally nailed it and never heard from them again. Doesn’t matter. Go for it and get out of your head. Sending good vibes as someone who has imposter issue too.

Interviewing for post-clerkship positions. Term ends in a month. Top choice told me I’m the only person interviewing for an unposted role. The interview went very well.

Need offer status ASAP because I can pursue other opportunities through connections but I don’t want to use my goodwill unless forced. BUT I need to pursue those options ASAP too. Advice?
