What to do When you fail:
1) Don t take it personally, it is not about you, everybody fails (ie I used to interview 5 people for 1 position which means, 4 nos for 1 yes!)
2) Ask for feedback all the time to understand precisely where you failed
3) Write down the points you need to improve or you feel you need to improve
4) Write down what you did well, because you need to feel confident and remember your strengths to be able to address your failures
5) Learn from your failure and train even more, train for your interviews, learn the unusual questions, improve your CV where it needs to be. Train, train and ask for feedbacks
At the end of the day, I always learnt much more from failures than from successes, and made a lot of progress accordingly.
Failing will happen to everyone, not learning from you failure is what will make the difference. And it will be another good point to show in an interview, another achievement to mention, another story to tell.
Failing from learning IS the real failure¦as long as you will try and will learn from it.
