Do you know that it is wise to speak only about your strengths during an interview? Unless the interviewer asks you to list down your weaknesses, it’s better to stick to the positive side of things.

Also, if you think you’re up for a job but seem to be under-qualified for it, you should still go for it! Craft a cover letter unique to the company and make sure you list down the reasons why you think you will make a great fit for the position you’re applying for.
