Career Advice: After the Failed Interview
You should look back at your interview preparation and practice and ask yourself if you did everything you could to give a strong interview.

Did you use concrete examples in your responses?
Did you demonstrate a strong understanding of the position and employer?
Did you present your responses clearly and confidently?
Did your nonverbal communication enhance your verbal communication?
Did you ask good questions?
Did you send thank you notes after the interview?
Think critically about your performance, but not too harshly. Give yourself an honest appraisal so you can identify any factors you can improve before the next interview.
