Failed another interview.

Post by SwervingCentaur » Wed Mar 21, 2018 1:14 am

Failed an interview by one point, because I got mixed up in the roleplaying, and ended up getting confused with the difference between payment, bill, and being in credit. Only had five minutes to prep my questions and responses. I am actually starting to think that I won't ever work.

The important thing is that you want to and care. Try not to beat yourself about it, though I appreciate you are and I would too. It doesn't seem to help.

Role play is a new one
Not had one like that but think my last interview until today was back in 2005. I will be asked questions on examples of how I have demonstrated competancies. Oh joy. Keep on going and you will get there.

Update: My interview was an unremitting disaster as I went to pieces!

Failed another interview. I think I've failed about 4 or five interviews this year.

Have you asked them for any feedback about your application(s)?

I'm fortunate that I'm in the enviable position where whilst I was very disappointed by my failure to gain the promotion into a new job which I and everyone thought I would get. Unusually I feel some comfort in I knowing where I need to be/what I need to do next time.

I was blissfully unaware of Dyspraxia in the early 90s but got and failed multiple interviews only to fail at that hurdle and it is a horrible feeling and you really feel like you will never succeed.

They picked someone who had better typing skills.
