“What’s the difference between selling yourself at interview, and being arrogant?” It’s a question that often comes up in our conversations with university interview candidates.
The difference is the way you feel about it when you say it.
If you’ve learnt at school that self-aggrandisement does nothing for one’s social standing, it’s easy to cringe when you talk about yourself.
But once you understand what the interviewer is looking for, and that they want someone who is naturally suited to studying their subject, it’ll make sense to help them see this in you.
