There’s nothing worse than preparing for a job interview and then botching it. Maybe you flubbed a question or all of them. How can you move forward after that? Try not to worry, you can learn from the experience. Here's how.
Every imperfect interview allows you to get ready for the next job opening and the next round of interviews. Use your reflections to prepare not only for the questions you couldn’t answer the first time but also for new questions. While it’s always best to answer a question directly, if you truly can’t answer it, it’s okay to say you don’t know, but always follow up by talking about how you’ve succeeded in jobs where you had to figure out something you had never done before. Authenticity and passion will always triumph over exact experience, especially if you can demonstrate a skill set that will allow you to bring even more value or fit into the culture easily.
