Fake it 'Til you Make It

Here's a good primer on how you can take control of body language--visual cues that offer a prospective employer an insight into who you are, and what you can offer. 

Note that this article doesn't simply tell you to "have confidence"--rather it tells how to show you have confidence. You've probably heard the old adage that "it takes money to make money"? Well, you can build your confidence by exhibiting confident body language. Not only will you get feedback that says others believe in you; but the act of behaving confidently will change your perceptions of yourself.

Added bonus: if you're talking on the telephone, remember to keep your physical body language in key with what you would be doing in person. You can hear someone smile over the phone, and you can hear someone standing (or sitting) up straight rather than slouching.
