Even when you have prepared thoroughly some interviews may not go to plan and you can still struggle. This can happen for a wide variety of reasons.
If an interview is not going to plan what can you do?
There are two options:
a) Continue on as you are and accept your fate. Thank the interviewer and leave the interview. You have sealed your fate and you will not get the job.
b) Address the situation and try to rectify it and fight yourself out of the corner. If you are aware of the mistake you can admit to the mistake. You can point out the mistake and explain what you meant to say. If you feel the interview is not going well but are unclear why then just ask the interviewer for feedback.
Let’s face it you may not be able to pull the interview back into a favorable scenario BUT if the interview is not going well you certainly have nothing to lose.
