If you’ve applied for the job of your dreams, but haven’t made it through to interview, you may be asking yourself what went wrong. This can be a frustrating and upsetting situation, but it can also be a useful experience that you can learn from and develop for the next application.
At CareerWise, we aim to match the perfect candidate up with the correct job every time. However we know that things don’t always go to plan, and we’ve come up with a few helpful tips to reflect on if you have missed out on an interview this time.
Unless you phone and ask for feedback, you’ll never know why you didn’t get an interview, so you won’t know what to do differently next time.
Remember, if you didn’t get an interview, the chances are that this wasn’t the perfect job for you. It’s out there somewhere, so don’t give up!
