So I’ve just heard back about the interview I went to on Thursday and I didn’t get the role. It was another job that I knew I could do but in the end, they wanted someone with more experience. I’m not sure if that’s the actual reason, or if I just didn’t get across that I am capable of doing what the role requires.

I was really nervous again during the interview – so much so that I twice failed to laugh at the slightly dodgy joke one of the interviewers was making about there being a box of tissues in the interview room. Having said that, I wasn’t as nervous as previous interviews so there’s that. I don’t know if nerves make you look like you’d be like that all the time? Undermining your ability to get the job from the start. Perhaps they do, perhaps they don’t. Either way, I think I’d be much more comfortable if I just calmed down so that’s something to focus on for my next interview.

Silver lining: At least I got to dress up nicely, wander around the city on a beautiful day, do some shopping, and meet Tom after he’d finished work.
