    I had an interview for my dream role and I don't feel good about how it went

    I prepared for all the main questions that are typically asked (trainee accountant) but feel like I blew my chance on some of the questions I answered. Some of them I'm getting bad flashbacks about bc I'm unhappy with how I answered.

    - what do you think makes a successful person - I rambled some ********

    - if you needed advice from someone about anything who would you go to (it can be anyone). - what are they looking for here? I said my siblings and said a few lines and gave an example.

    - (something along the lines of) what's the most difficult choice you've made recently - I gave an answer but idk,

    - What's your one fear about this role

    what sort of answer are they looking for?

    They didn't ask any I was prepared for like: why accountancy, what are your strengths and weaknesses, why do you want to work here, etc!

    These are all extremely common interview questions. For future interviews I'd recommend looking at lists of popular interview questions on the internet and writing down full answers for all of them, that way there will be less of a shock when it comes to the interview itself.
