Okay so here’s the deal.
I have several years that I haven’t had a job interview because when I needed to change jobs it was for people who knew my work personally and the offer was on the table. However, now I applied for a new job via LinkedIn and tomorrow I have an online interview and currently even though I know I’m perfect for the job and I know my abilities, I’m afraid I’ll fail.
Any advice on how to have a successful interview?
Role is Business Development Manager.

Im in finance and I’ve been getting asked more and more to evaluate candidates in IT. Im not sure why, I’ve been an engineer for 20 years, however I no longer write software.

My problem is I just don’t feel qualified to interview kids for work I’m not as in touch with. Am I overthinking this?
