Interviewing & Job Hunting Questions

How can I turn around a bad interview?

Because of construction personal reasons, I was not at my best during a job construction interview and was turned down for a position that I wanted very badly. What are my chances of getting a second construction interview and what is the best way to ask? If the position was already awarded to another construction executive, getting your foot back in the door for further consideration will be easier said than done. I suggest you write a brief construction personal note of explanation and mail it to the HR professional who conducted your construction interview. Attach your construction resume, and ask that your information be immediately considered for any other openings in which you qualify, or that your information is kept on file for consideration of future openings. Sometimes, the construction interviewer may understandably award another construction interview or you may just receive the cold shoulder. Either way, take it as a lesson learned and be prepared for the next construction interview.
