Speaking honestly

I have been struggling to master interviews and get consistent employment and think sometimes I can get into the habit of speaking honestly about my skill levels, employment gaps, or lack of experience with something.

Sometimes people will say I appreciate your honesty, but in the end, I haven’t been getting any job as a result. I want to present my best authentic self, but it seems like that hasn’t been good enough for many potential employers.

Any thoughts on how to power through this and start getting back to winning at things?
