Sir/Mam according to me,

If someone says that I speak English well, then this is confidence.

The best and simple example to explain the difference is that.

The difference between confidence and over-confidence is

For example, I am an employee in the company my boss assigned me work and said submit work on time. Then I can do this work and submit given time is confidence.

Only I can do this work and submit given time is overconfidence.

Confidence always gives a positive attitude, Positive thinking and overconfidence give over attitude and negative thinking.

Sir, for me there is a fine difference between confidence and overconfidence as I face it practically in my life. Confidence is accompanied to the belief of an individual where the confidence shows a part of the persons ego and lack of self-evaluation.

As for showing the difference with the help of the statement.

"I am sure that I get this job" shows confidence".

"I am super sure that I get this job" shows some overconfidence.

Confidence :-.

Shows your skills, positive attitude, knowledge and much more.

Then we are talking about overconfidence :

Always shows your weak points like your fake attitude, your surplus energy, your fake personality, and many more.

So, these are common differences in confidence and overconfidence.

Sir/mam, there is my example that shows the difference between confidence & overconfident. For example, if I say I am the only one suitable for this job it's my confidence.

If I say I am the only one suitable for this job it's my overconfident.

Confidence shows knowledge & it is task-oriented.

Overconfidence shows a fake attitude and it is ego-oriented.

In my opinion, Confidence is a strong belief on your knowledge, strategy, and capability to work hard and make that thing happen. They don't think about other's judgment.

Overconfidence on the other hand no research, no tendency to learn more, and planning and strategizing only based on the current knowledge that they had. They are unable to foresee the challenges. And hence in the end fail to accomplish the goal. They do think about other people and work accordingly.
