Interested in Language
Context: a friend of mine is going to have an interview for a job which is very competitive: 10 of 1000 will be selected. He is a bit worry so I want to say:
Don't worry, you will be chosen.
How do you say it naturally as a native English speaker would say?
Thanks so much.
I'm a native English speaker from the United States. A few possibilities for me would be:
Don't worry, you're going to do great
Don't worry, you're going to get the job
Relax, you'll do fine
Don't worry, I'm sure they'll choose you
I hope all that helps,

Just do it, you are bound to succeed.
P.S. : I am not a teacher of English, just someone who loves the language.
So, I would say..
"Don't worry, I am sure you will be chosen"
But in my opinion, that is a bit over confident, if the job is so competitive, how do you KNOW that he will be chosen? So I would personally opt to say
"Don't worry, you will be fine"
(English is my first language, although I am not a teacher :) )
