Is it OK to ask why you didn’t get hired?
It’s unlikely that the hiring manager will call you to tell you didn’t get the job, but if they do, you can ask if they have any feedback to share. Again, you’ll want to ask within a day or two after finding out you didn’t get the offer, while the hiring manager can still remember the details of your interview.
How do you ask why you didn’t get the job email?
Start by sending that person an email soon after the decision has been made. Dudley suggests saying you’re appreciative that you had the chance to interview and you’re sorry you didn’t get the job. Then, ask if they could spare 10 minutes for a phone call in the coming days to discuss areas where you could improve.

Your Personality Isn’t Shining Through
