Keep in touch if you don’t get the job

And if you don’t get the job, try not to panic.

She says: “Sit back and reflect. Don’t beat yourself up, you’re still a great candidate.

“Reach back out to them and ask them for feedback on what you could have improved or what you could have done better.

“Thank them for their time and remain in contact. Nine times out of 10 if a position comes up like that position, managers, HR directors will often think of you and keep your resumé at the top of the stack.”
