Definitely do it next time, but Were you able to speak knowledgably about the company and ask insightful questions about the job? YES all may not be lost. Do you meet ALL of the NO requirements specified? YES C'mon - you've got to be prepared! But maybe it wasn't as bad as you thought. Well maybe not everything they listed.. YES NO Did you get invited to come in? Did you follow Did you reach out to a hiring manager or other relevant connection YES NO up with the recruiter? via LinkedIn? NO YES YES NO You weren't right for this position but your resume is likely stored in a database You may still want to try and contact someone in HR via Congrats!
