After successfully making it to the final round of interviews with the Sr. Finance Manager at a F50, and navigating through to a role that was perfectly suited for me, I blew it.
During what was the "technical questioning", I missed one answer due to a misinterpreted detail, and accidentally followed up by dropping the S--- bomb quickly out loud, but to myself.
Maybe it was because I found myself being too casual in the interview so that we could easily discuss, instead of sounding rehearsed and disingenuous. Luckily he was receptive to my follow up email to ask for feedback once I received the rejection letter and we spoke this morning. He said that I was an incredible candidate, but the cinch in the armor he saw was my choice of language and that I accidentally cursed once or twice.
I never thought I would ever accidentally do that. Lesson learned.
