Ask A Recruiter

Had interview last week for a role I am very qualified for but botched my phone interview with the hiring manager, did a poor job explaining my background, worth explaining this to internal recruiter?

im sooooo bad with interviews, i once had a phone one where they asked a question i wasn’t expecting and i started saying “hello? hello?” pretending they cut out to give me time to think of an answer 😭 im curious what others think here, always wondered if it was worth sending an email explaining im nervous in interviews

Is your background that complicated that it's hard to explain?

Nope I just did poor job on it and didn’t recover well. I know first impressions mean a lot and just hoping I could get a second chance with the hiring manger down the line.
