Real answer: go in not caring what the end result is - like you got the interview once - worst case you have to apply again You get nervous cause you care too much about it or you feel like you may lose something but reality is you don’t even have it yet - so stop valuing a future that doesn’t exist in reality besides in your head

That last part was powerful.

Honestly managing nerves are part of the interview itself, this job requires you to be able to push nerves out of the way and perform in stressful situation. And to echo BA1, you gotta just have a no care attitude, it’s just a job, it’s not life or death

I’ve had several great interviews with a few diff companies. Or rather, I thought they went well but then I get the dreaded “thanks but we made the difficult decision to move forward with other candidates”. I’ve asked for feedback but so far have gotten none. I know it’s competitive out there, but I also don’t know how I can either position myself better, seek positions that are more aligned with my expertise/experience, or work on improving certain areas. Any advice on how to proceed?
