How to Make Every Interview a Learning Opportunity

You finished that important job interview. You walk out of the office, your mind is swimming with thoughts about how it went: what went right, what didn’t. What questions were you prepared for? What questions caught you by surprise?

For possible future reference, it is important to log what occurred during your interview with the employer. These notes can help you in further interviews as well as interviews for other positions. Reflection-on-Action  is the art of learning from our experiences. As soon as you are able, write down every experience or reflection you have of the interview. Then, when you have some time to recreate and reflect upon those experiences, analyze what went right, or what you would change. Use the chart below to help you.
