Make each interview a learning experience to improve your interview technique, evaluate your performance immediately following the process.
Ask yourself the following questions:
How did the interview go generally?
What points did I make that seemed to interest the employer/recruiter?
Did I present my qualifications, relevant work experience and/or coursework well? Did I overlook anything which could be pertinent to the job?
Did I learn all I needed to know about the job?
Did I forget or hesitate to ask about factors that are important to me?
Did I talk too much? Did I do enough talking?
Did I show enthusiasm and interest?
Did I interview the employer rather than have the employer interview me?
Was I too tense? How can I relax?
Do I know what the next step is?
Do I know what the time frame is for a decision?
How can I improve my next interview?
