Hi everyone,
I am in the last stages of an interview process and I really fucked up a 15-min talk with some on the team. I’ve already spoken with two collegues and it went very well, but this one I totally blew because I stuttered, was super nervous and could not answer the questions properly. Considering that I’m probably not a favourite for this one guy, what do you think my chances are for landing the job? Can I do something to “save” the situation?

I can tell you that you probably didn’t do as bad as you think you did. We are our own worst critics. We will replay the scenario over and over in our mind building it up to the point that we think they will never select us. I recently went through multiple rounds of interviews, one round with a panel and there’s several moments that I replayed in my mind later. Why did I say that one thing, they saw I stumbled on that one question, etc etc etc. I didn’t think I would move to the next round BUT I did. It doesn’t impact them the way it impacts you. Even if you were off, I’m sure they spoke and realize that. Maybe they know you had an off moment. We all get nervous at times. I actually just found out I got that job, so it goes to show you that how we build it up in our minds isn’t always how their perceive it on their end. Stay strong! You got this! And if it doesn’t work out, it only means that isn’t the right position for you.
