I had an interview for a very large company. Following this interview a few of my ex-colleagues had told me they were aware of other people who had gone in for this job and some current colleagues of that company had mentioned that the jobs had been ring-fenced for specific people, but interviewing was still a requirement.
To cut a long story short, I didn't get the job. I have had many job interviews in the past and often regard them as learning experiences as they do vary depending on the company and the nature of the job.
My issue was that during the interviewing process, the job had changed and I was considered for the new job, however it also changed back after my telephone interview but I had the skills and experience for the first job so I proceeded once again. The questions in the interview were what I would have expected for that type of job, however when I finally got the feedback (which is always good to help you grow) the HR adviser had listed a number of things which weren't asked during the interview nor was any opportunity given for me to demonstrate that I had in fact had the experience they said I lacked as the questions were very focused and we were constrained by time.
As I said previously, I've been through interview processes many times for a number of large and small companies and have been unsuccessful on a number of occasions. It just feels very disappointing when you feel that you missed out and have no idea what to work on as the feedback was not relevant. I had mentioned this to the HR advisory on the phone (without sounding desperate) and they were quick to rush me off the phone.
How do I get the point that my feedback wasn't relevant to my interview, without coming across as being bitter about it? I would actually like to work for that company still at some point but I just feel that the situation wasn't handled very well and I wasn't given a fair chance.
EDIT: One of my friends had mentioned that maybe they were waiting for me to demonstrate the particular skills etc. However, I looked closely at what the job would entail and what the job specification stated. It's like I have experience in a number of different areas, but can't just list through them all as it's only really necessary to discuss "relevant" experience which is what they usually ask.
