every interview it is important to evaluate your performance. This is the only
way you will learn from your experiences and improve on your performance.
Consider the following questions:
positive impressions did I make? Negative? Why did I make these impressions?
there anything I wanted to say but didn't?
questions would I have liked to ask, but didn't?
questions would I have answered differently? How would I have changed my
I feel about the interview?
If you are informed following an interview that you did not get the
position, it is a great idea to contact one of the interviewers to see where you
could have performed better. To get candid answers, it is important that you
don't make the interviewer defensive by starting out with, "Can
you tell me why I didn't get the job?" A
better approach would be, "Would you have a
couple of minutes to suggest which areas could use some strengthening?"
