How to Save an Interview Gone Wrong

How to Save an Interview Gone Wrong

Everything was going so well. Your solid handshake was met with a warm smile from the hiring manager. The interview started off with some small talk that segued into some skillfully answered questions. You can already see what your desk is going to look like.

Then, as suddenly as a lightning strike, the interview takes a turn for the worse.

Whether it’s a question you weren’t prepared for or not-so-well-received answer it’s easy to tell when an interview has gone off course. And it’s quite possibly the most nerve-wracking, upsetting, desperate experience a job seeker can suffer.

Like Charles Sullenberger approaching the Hudson River, one can make the best of a bad situation, no matter how dire. However, saving a bad interview takes quick thinking and persistence. Are you up to the challenge?

    Good suggestions. I've been in these situations. I soon realized during one interview that I was being tested and the interviewers approach was to be very negative about everything to see how I would react. I think I handled it well because I was offered the job. However, I turned it down as I thought the interviewer went too far. Prospective employers should also be careful about streching their limits during an interview. I took another position which worked out very well.
