    I just failed an interview. Apparently my answer were good but I just didn't seem professional enough. Any advice?

    Be more professional
    For example, wear a shrt and tie, not casual clothes.
    Speak formal, don't speak like you're talking to friends.
    Switch mobile phone off.
    That's all I can think of - I hope that helps, I've never been to a job interview...

    Appearance, coherence, interest, engagement, energy, punctuality. And do your research on your interviewers/potential employers.

    Honestly it's not that hard, just act like a 50 y/o business man at an interview.

    You might find this article useful from a recent graduate about her interview experiences. She talks about dress code and presentation. http://advice.milkround.com/a-gradua...job-interviews

    Just remember that all interview are different as each employer is looking for a certain set of qualities in a candidate to fit their role. You might find that in your next interview you are the perfect candidate they are looking for!
