I am going to give my best in the interview to impress the panel, this is confidence.

The interviewer is definitely going to hire me, that's over-confidence.

If someone is confident then he will say 'I can do it' it is confidence and overconfident person will say 'only I can do it' it is the sign of overconfidence.

Expectation of good result after honest effort is confidence.

And expecting good result without struggle is over confidence.

Confidence is the true trust of your inner where you "Yourself know you can do it".

While over confidence brings you to say anything that is out on the topic while you are smiling during the interview. It is like you are answering then you don't even know what it means.

In my point of view, confidence is having full faith on yourself i.e. you are sure that the work you have done is just perfect in your own view and can compete with others while on the other hand over confidence is something that you are blind that no one is better than you in that work which often lead us to trouble.

According to confidence you say "I can do it" it means some other one can also do this thing but over confidence means "only I can do it" no one other can do this work in the world.

Difference between these two is easily Identifiable. Confidence strengthens the human abilities where over confidence throws the person into laziness.

And also confidence makes the persons to keep themselves updated.

But O/C leave them un-updated.

Both of them is somewhat a competition and conflict with your inner one. If there is a competition between your and yourself and have faith that you are going to be the winner its confidence.

But if there is competition between you and others and you blindly believe you are better than anyone without judging yourself. Its overconfidence.

Confidence for me means to believe in me and my hard work.

Overconfidence means believing only in me and without hard work everything is just impossible.

The only difference between confidence and overconfidence is hard work and dedication. If a person thinks that he/she can do the job and works hard for it then he/she is confident while if he/she just thinks that the job can done and doesn't put any effort whatsoever for the fulfillment of the task at hand then he/she is overconfident.

Increase our opportunities with confidence, and with overconfidence we loss the all opportunities.

Ex : I get the job from your company (confidence).

I only get the job from your company (overconfidence).

Confidence is a thing which give us an entrust about our ability to do a work and overconfidence is a thing which ruins our work and success. For Eg. Confidence says if you give a chance to me I can make it a golden opportunity with my effort and overconfidence says I had only one who deserve this chance.

Confidence is a positive word and overconfidence is a negative word. So, confidence can help you and help you sail through any difficult situation but overconfidence can spoil everything!

Confidence is being comfortable in your own skin and expressing yourself without feeling insecure or nervous. It comes when one knows one's strengths as well as faults, and accepts them to improve oneself.

Overconfidence is when a person 'believes' that he/she is right every single time and that there's nothing the others 'need' do, but follow him/her happily.

If the interviewer says something like, "If you can do it, there are hundred others who can do it too. Why should we choose you and not them?".

If you say because I can do it better than others, the interviewer might twist your reply to mean that you are over-confident.

Confidence is belief. Overconfidence is superstition. Confidence makes you see clearly, overconfidence makes you blind. Confidence comes from knowing whereas overconfidence comes from fear. Confident creates, overconfident ruins the thing. Confidence gives strength within, overconfidence scatters the energies.

Confidence is believing that I have the ability to do a job well but over confidence is believing that apart from me, no one else can do this job. Therefore if I leave this company, the company will collapse or no one else should be given the job to do except me. Over confidence is all must always listen to me and me only and my ideas are the best and superior to all else.

Confidence can be defined as having a proper plan and determination and achieving a goal. Where as over confidence is having no perfect plan but assuming themselves to achieve their goals.

With the help of one's confidence a person can win their dreams step by step whereas with over confidence one surely falls down from the step where they are standing.

The difference between confidence and overconfidence is this, that when you are confident you can do something that was impossible and if you are over confident you can not even repeat the thing that someone has already done.
