The answers provided here can also help to put an end to that feeling of depression that usually comes with such a situation.
There are many applicants
When an Interviewer said they would call but didn’t, it may not be because the interviewer does not like your face or does not like the way you perform during the interview; it may just be because there are so many applicants and that many of these applicants are equally qualified. Consequently, the interviewer will be in a very difficult situation and will have to pick just any of the suitably qualified candidates. Even if you are one of the qualified candidates, you may end up not being selected because of the multitude of qualified candidates. Also, the selection process may take a very long time. For all you know, the selection process may still be on and the interviewer has not called back because the process is yet to be completed.
If the candidates are many, then the interviewers will need time to discuss each of the candidates before finally selecting the individual to employ. Things can also take a long time if there are many interviewers. In such a situation, each of the interviewers will have to give his or her opinion about the job seeker. The entire process will, therefore, take a very long time, especially if there are so many applicants.
You do not have all the requirements
One of the many reasons why interviewers fail to call back as promised is that you do not meet all the requirements. You might have performed excellently at the interview, but you may still not be considered for the job if you are missing one or two of the must-have requirements or skills. Your performance at the interview may seem like a perfect one, but you might have failed to be adequately persuasive during the interview, which may be the reason for which the interviewer failed to call you back.
