Have you suffered from imposter syndrome? A good friend of mine was being interviewed for a top-tier law firm. She had her JD/MBA from her Ivy League school and stellar grades to match. However, during her interview she looked down to realize she was wearing 2 different shoes! For a second, she was devastated. How would the partners view her abilities if she couldn’t even match her shoes? The good news is that she didn’t let it throw her, she tucked her feet under her chair, and she got the job.
