    I had a rather awkward interview where I didn't say anything like as much as I should have. My knowledge is good but I fell to pieces in the interview.

    At the end the woman said ' there are 5 positions we are hiring for, we are interviewing tomorrow too so you will hear our decision on Tuesday'. I got the feeling she had decided she wasn't going to take me on because she had a definite day I would hear back. It's for a council job.

    She asked me where I live and if there's any team I oarticularly want to work at which I felt were good signs but overall I felt the interview went badly and I failed to impress. Is the Tuesday thing a bad sign? Very nervous candidate here!

    You're overthinking it. She wants to see every candidate before she makes a firm decision so she is in a good place to pick the best candidate. She wants the new hire to be working ASAP, hence you'll hear back on Tuesday. They have deadlines to meet.
    If I was hiring you and you were that bad during the interview, I wouldn't have bothered asking what team you want to work at. Don't worry about it.

    Well they never called me after all. I've definetly not got the job :-( been waiting anxiously all day.

    I'm never normally like this but I wanted this job so so much. It's amazing job and I could barely believe I got an interview and I feek I blew it :-(

    Will have to wait until they bother to let me know I wasnnt successful. If they ever do! I expected better as this is a council for a major city

    Don't worry if you don't get this job ; the fact that you got an interview suggests your CV is impressive. Just keep applying for more jobs and get more interviews and you'll get something sooner or later good luck

    Thank you :-)

    I'm pleased I got the interviews but so disappointed with myself. Deep down I knee this job was out of my reach really die to my experience but I should have given it my best shot and not let my nerves affect me so much.

    I just need to know I didn't get it now so I can get over the disappointment and start looking again. The waiting is making me so anxious!
