i got rejected after an interview even though it seemed to go pretty well but he didn't ask much questions about myself but rejected me anyway,
also said this job is well suited for me as i go to college

what may have been the reason?

Update: i rang up for feedback the next day and he assumed i was leaving to go for uni next year but i explained i am taking a gap year. He said hes more than happy to take me on but now as lockdown has started again in england idk if he will be able to take me on

More qualified person interviewed also.
Availability not suitable

Any number of things...did you ask for feedback?

In general they will interview at least 10people for the one position so it could well be that there was someone with more experience etc.

It is possible you can be too qualified. It might sound odd to be 'too qualified' to work somewhere, but I'm guessing their thought process is if you have a good chance at working somewhere better, hiring you wouldn't be a smart move as you could easily be hired somewhere with more and better benefits. You can never really pinpoint for sure their reasoning though. :dontknow:

Your answers may not have been what they were looking for.

Ahhh yeah, they're probably looking for someone to work there long term. At least that's not your fault tho.
