How bad do you think I bombed my job interview?


Overall, the interview went pretty well. I had good answers to the questions and such. Just a little info, this was an internal company interview for a promotion.

There was one part where they asked about this new initiative that is coming up. I had never heard of it but was able to get a little bit of an idea. It never came across during my research of the position so I pretty much stumbled through the question.

I did well in the rest of the interview and make my selling point as a leader who would bring positive motivation and energy to the team.

That being said, how quickly do you think I will get the call saying I didn't get the job?

If your answer was as detailed as the post then you are screwed. We need to know what the question was about and what your answer consisted of. It could be stumbling but acceptable or stumbling and terrible.

With this negative outlook you should call and tell them you aren't the right person for a leadership role.

No one has ever thought of this selling point. I'm sure you separated yourself from the other candidates...

I hope you didn't just tell them you would do this. You have to show them how you will do this and what past, verifiable, actions demonstrate that you are up to meeting the challenge.

No, I definitely showed this in the interview. I didn't just say, hey I'm a positive guy so hire me. I had examples of how I have been an effective leader throughout the interview. It was an hour and a half interview which I did pretty well in every part except for the one I mentioned but it seemed to be a pretty big part.

I'm not giving much more detail about the situation because it is info I can't share with you peons.

Gotcha.....so anotherwords, the place you currently work is thinking about bringing on onion rings as an additional menu item and you've been head fry cook for the past 5 years so they want to know can you handle the new product.

So clear now.

If that's the best you can sugar coat it, I'd say really soon.
