Performing well at interview is a very important part of securing the job you want, and the feedback you receive after an interview can help you to plan and develop your interview technique for the next application.
If you have been consistently invited for interview but have yet to get the role you want, you should certainly be asking your interviewers for feedback and taking some time to consider what you will need to do differently in the future.

You can also generate useful feedback on your interview technique by recording yourself and being very honest in your appraisal, or by asking a friend or relative to help you to refine your style. Ask specifically about the way that you introduce yourself and the body language you use, as well as the answers you give, how prepared you appear and whether you could present yourself more favourably.
