I just got a call back from the recruiter about a job I interviewed for a few days back to tell I did not get the job.
The job is in a technical field, and the feedback I got was that my technical skills are not sufficient, which I understand.
As I am still very interested in landing a job in this field and possibly with the same company, I asked the recruiter if they would consider me at a later stage if I gained more experience to which he said definitely. However, the feedback I got wasn't very detailed.
Would it be acceptable to send the recruiter an email and ask if I could get in touch with the hiring manager directly to get some more insight into the skills they require and where I seem to lack? I am just looking for some advice, but don't want to seem pushy and ruin my chances for future employment with this company.
