Following Up The Interview

Evaluate the Interview

After every interview it is important to evaluate your performance. This is the only way you will learn from you experiences and improve on you performance. Consider the following questions:

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 a candid answer, 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?"
