Really messed up a technical phone screen today and just blanked and made myself look incompetent. I don’t know what to do, I was so nervous and really want the job.

I sent a thank you note and hope I do hear back but essentially I was asked a couple questions where I just didn’t articulate my answer clearly enough to show that I did know the material. It was a question regarding epic and what modules I’ve used and I could only think of one even though I’ve used many because I was so nervous and tripping over my thoughts and then another question about what version ie ambulatory or hospital and instead I ranted about a past project on a diff platform

Yes I’m familiar with that But I just didn’t articulate myself well with that because I was so nervous and blanking out. Now they have no idea that I know. So you think I blew it?

Next time you can try a hail mary, come clean in your thank you note that you were nervous and messed up whatever question and then answer the question. if they liked you personally just were questioning your technical skills this may result in a follow-up conversation. I know for me it would work or at least make me rethink if we should pass or not. Either way OP you win some, you lose some. Maybe you lost this round... You will get em next time!

If you have the ability to reach a human and course correct, do so. If not, hope for the best and apply again in a few months. Consulting jobs seem to be widely available, despite the layoffs consultancies are having in addition to the doom and gloom we discuss here 😆

Give me an example of how you “messed up”. It likely was not as bad as you think. Send a thank you note and wait to hear back, that’s all you can do at this point.

It's alright, we all trip up here and there. Don't beat yourself up too hard. If this falls through, you'll be even better prepared next time.

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive
