What to do when an interview goes badly

We’ve all come out of an interview at some point in our lives wishing the ground would swallow us up! It can be hard to take when an interview doesn’t go to plan – So what should you do when an interview goes badly?

Relax! Immediately after you must give yourself some time to relax and de-stress. Spend some time doing the things you enjoy and try to take your mind off it for a while.

Assess the situation. Try to consider what went wrong in the interview, and try not to overreact – mistakes happen, and those mistakes that seem big to you might not in reality be that significant to others.

Take time to learn. Once you’ve considered your mistakes, learn from them. Plan what you’ll do differently next time, but also remember the positives too.

Follow it up. Send an email to your interviewer, thanking them for their time and adding in any points you think you may have missed in the interview – but keep it brief and to the point.

Keep on going. Don’t give up on your job search – keep looking for that ideal opportunity!
