If I learned anything about being cocky, is that it makes you look way more ridiculous when you fail. Instead of being cocky, I just lower everyone's expectations so they are blown away when I'm pretty okay at something.

I once sent a cover letter in which I bragged about my attention to detail as well. Only I missed a word so it read "attention detail"... I missed it when I reread it and only after I sent it did my husband read it and point out my mistake. I got the job anyway. Six years later, I realize that it's because they will hire literally anybody. Good luck to you on your job search, and may you remember to exercise your attention to detail next time.
