I just finished an interview and thought I knocked it out of the park. I got a call telling me that I got rejected and was naturally disappointed. I reached out to my interviewers for feedback and I was fortunate enough to get a response. The confusing part for me is that my interviewers told me that I was very sound technically, was a great fit for the company, and that they enjoyed talking to me in the interviews. However, they said that there were a lot of qualified candidates and that I was unfortunately rejected. I would've felt better if there was something I actually did wrong that I could've fixed for future scenarios, but being told that I was basically a great match, but still getting rejected is a bit disheartening for me. Any advice on how to go about future interviews?
