No Dice

Thursday, August 15, 2013

So the interview last week went okay. I spent a lot of time preparing, I was very nervous, but I did feel prepared. Almost over-prepared in fact. Directly afterwards I felt all right about it. Though the more I thought about things I said the worse I felt about it, thinking of things I should have said differently or shouldn't have said at all. But I know for next time. Oh and I know there will be a next time because I did get an email earlier this week saying that they've offered the position to another candidate. So a little disappointed at that. Though I understand that I may not be the best fit anyway because the position involved a lot more recruitment and presentations than I realized (which I could do but would definitely stretch me).

    As you inevitably replay in your head what happened, stop and ask yourself what you can learn from each part of the interview. Take what happened and learn from it so you have a better chance next time. Also, if you have not done so, respond to the email and thank them for their time and the opportunity to meet with them. Let them know that you're still interested in working for the company and would appreciate having another opportunity to meet with them in the future should the opportunity arise. This might help you get into a file of potential candidates for future openings. Also, it might help stick you into the mind of HR, so if you can apply again in the future they will remember you as the person who was gracious and really interested in working for them. Can't hurt, right?

  As a teacher, I always say, "It's okay to make mistakes as long as you learn from them!" You'll get'em next time!
