    Hi Prosenior


    What was the job you were interviewed for if you don't mind me asking?

    First of all, did they give you any feedback on your interview, or were you just notified that you were unsuccessful? If so, I would definitely contact them and ask for some feedback as to why - it will give you a much better idea on where to improve for next time!

    From my own experience with interviews I always stick to a similar technique of explaining situations I have been in, what challenges I faced, how I overcame them and what I learned from this/what I would do next time. It's a good way of showing that you're able to reflect, learn and develop and employers really look out for this.

    I hope this helps, let me know how you get on!

    Thanks

    Hi Jack

    Ah that's a shame! I used to work for Tesco, I understand that they can be quite reluctant to give feedback on interviews, they just get such a high volume of applicants I guess they struggle to get back to people.

    Don't let it get you down though! Keep persevering and hopefully something will come your way!

    Best of luck!

    Matt
