Check out Tim David’s profile at The Huffington Post for all his articles. Most recently he wrote a piece called, “Confident or Cocky? How Others See You.”

“Where do you see yourself in five years?” asked the interviewer. “I’ll have your job in three,” replied the millennial applicant. Confidence is a good thing, but this wasn’t confidence. It was arrogance. This is a true story I heard from an attendee of one of my leadership seminars. Needless to say, he didn’t get the job. In fact, the interview ended right there. “Thank you very much. Don’t call us, we’ll call you.” This is a balance so many people struggle with – How can you have confidence without being seen as cocky or arrogant? []
