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.

I always like to:
1. Review the job posting (what are they looking for and what skills do you have that match)
2. Write down some accomplishments you have made over the years at your jobs, what you like most about your field, what you wish you could change, why you’re looking to move* (biggie), and what you hope to learn at this new job
3. Questions to ask the interviewer

If you don’t reference anything you write down tomorrow that is fine. If anything this helps get you in the right headspace to think about your job and what you would say instead of stumbling over your words.

Lastly, Don’t forget to be yourself! You don’t want to take on a new role that you got pretending to be someone you’re not. If they don’t like you or you don’t mesh, it’s a blessing that you’re staying true to yourself and something else will come along. Goodluck!
