Interview processes aren't an accurate assessment of you as a person. They are a sliver of your abilities to perform on the day of, and subject to many random variables. For efficiencies sake, the company simply selects a set of people that meet what they require on average, and then luck/biases/fit often close the final rounds.

Use a day or two this weekend to recharge and get back out there, you are clearly doing something right if you made it that far in the interview process and can do it again elsewhere 💪

So true, you could be tired/allergies acting up/etc. It’s not always even your ability

Exactly, means it wasn’t the right opp. You will find something better

Ask yourself do you want to be somewhere you’re not wanted. Rejection feels a lot better when you answer that question. Good luck

It doesn't matter how many times it doesn't work out, you will get somewhere better if you keep at it.

Don’t get down on yourself OP, you just haven’t found the perfect opp yet!

Thx

Sorry to hear OP. I know it can be heartbreaking to not get an offer you worked so hard for, especially when it’s because of factors outside of your control. I hope you manage to get some rest and recuperation in in the coming days and eventually regroup and focus your efforts on the next one. Wishing you luck.

Thank you, I am focusing on this

Ask for feedback!!!
