By J.T. O'Donnell When it comes to job search, the good news is people reading Careerealism.com are starting to land interviews. (Thanks to all of you who have been e-mailing us your success stories - keep them coming!) The bad news is, a lot of job seekers are unskilled on the right way to display their confidence and humility in an interview. Granted, the two terms sound like polar opposites, but they're not. You need to be:

A) Confident in your self knowledge - a.k.a. articulate what your strengths are and how you use them to succeed on-the-job.


AND,

B) Humble by recognizing that you are not God, and thus, are capable of explaining how you couldn't have succeeded without the help on others.

So readers, if you are prepping for a job interview. I suggest the following:

1) Download the BEST Interview Prep Tool Ever and make sure you are prepared to answer and ask all the righ questions.

2) Watch the video above of Alec Baldwin from the movie Malice to remind you how NOT to answer questions regarding your skills and abilities.
