Really liking yourself could give you the edge during a job interview.

A new study finds narcissists known to be obnoxiously high on self-esteem are better able to talk about and promote themselves. That projects confidence and expertise to interviewers.

The study in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology says narcissists don't make better workers, they can be very disruptive and destructive when dealing with other people, so it's best to avoid hiring them.
