So I’m interviewing for a this job that I feel I’m qualified for and think my passion and motivation can help me fill in the gaps on things I don’t know - or push me to learn.

I’m in the second stage in the interview and I’m feeling like I’m not good enough. 

Anybody gone through this before? 
im just hoping my insecurities don’t overpower my strengths. Just seeing if anybody has any career advice .

 

Thanks in advance !

Hey good luck. 

If it's something you don't know, while I like that you are passionate about it, don't lie.  You don't want to find yourself in a critical situation where others believe you have the competency, and you end up leaving yourself open to error or misjudgment.   If anything, be honest and say you are a quick learner. Being honest will allow you to relax a bit more and take charge of the interview process.

Hi ! Thank you for replying ! The interview process is pretty tedious so I’m sure I won’t get it if I can’t do the job (has several practice  exercises to do ect ect )

 

It’s also not a clinical job just so you know.

I ended up rereading the job description  which reminded me why I was fit for the job. Thanks so much !
