Take initiative 

If the interview didn't end as you had hoped, it's up to you to keep your name fresh in the interviewer's mind. Take initiative to follow up with the interviewer and establish a connection. Even if the employer cannot offer you a job, find out if they can keep you updated about future job opportunities. This way, the interview doesn't go to waste and you have a new connection.

You've just finished a phone interview with an employer. Although you're feeling positive about the interview, the employer said they would only be in touch if they don't find someone more experienced. Feels like a slap in the face, right?

If you find yourself in this situation after an interview, it's easy to jump to conclusions. Your first thought after a bad job search experience might be the employer will never contact you. You could also make the decision to forget about the interview and move forward with the rest of your job search. Regardless of how you're feeling about the interview, don't give up hope just yet.

There's a secret to getting noticed by employers after an interview; you need to keep them interested even if they don't hire you for the position. If you can make a good first impression and catch an employer's interest, they're bound to keep you at the top of their list of potential candidates.
