    I went for a temporary job interview. The interviewers said I had a good interview but came across as quiet and would not be able to handle the difficult customers. I did not understand this as I have done the same job twice for 8 years at a previous employer and handled difficult customers quite well. They gave the job to someone without having experience in the sector as I was advised this by the agency beforehand that I had the chance being the only one with the experience. Is their reason for saying I am 'quiet' a poor excuse? I am fine with being rejected but confused as to why they don't think I can do the job.

    You may not have done enough to convince them that you could do the job or they had other reasons. There's nothing you can do about that so cut your losses and move on.

    Remember they haven't seen you at work so they don't know you can do the job well, they only have your interview performance to go off of.
