Learn from your failures to succeed


it is a good idea to get as much feedback as possible from failures and ask for it from job interviews. I failed to do this on my job interview and in view of my age and other factors didn't manage to get another job despite a huge number of applications and good CV and loads of varied experience. Previously I had always been far more successful and fortunate at interviews and getting the jobs i went after when I was younger but times and the labour market has changed and instead of kicking myself for my failures I would have done far better to put my pride in my pocket and request this feedback and learn from it even though some of it may hurt.
