First, you are qualified. Conquer that negative self talk first. Then review the job description and note what you already know and can speak to for an interview. Research the items you don’t. Practice the STAR interviewing method!

Agreed, don't doubt yourself or sell yourself short! Seems like you have a great opportunity in front of you

I'm not technical but I'd make sure you're aware of our focuses (artificial intelligence and hybrid cloud) as well as showing a growth mindset and want to grow. Generally, IBMers are big into learning (we have to do 40 hours of learning every year) so I'd try to show some passion as well as history in that. Best of luck!
