It has been a really tough morning, after practising daily for months, I got rejected this morning with a below average interview. Though this was my first interview, I am an older applicant. I tried everything I can. I read a lot to prepare for my interview, in fact many of the topics during my interview were topics that I have prepared for. I feel so lost. Was it the way I talked? Could it be my accent? Maybe i was too nervous? Has anyone gotten in on their second attempt after getting a below average interview? How I can proceed from here? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
