I had very little previously, and this lost me the job opportunity Tags: See more , See less 8 Answer Add Tags Answer Interview Answer 3 Answers ▲ 0 ▼ No previous experience Interview Candidate on Aug 7, 2012 ▲ 0 ▼ I'm sorry that you did not get the job. You mentioned that you did not get the job because you did not have enough previous experience and I wondered whether you remembered to mention the wonderful transferable skills that you do possess and which relate to the job spec? For example, if you worked as a Customer Service Agent, you could mention your strong interpersonal, problem solving and persuation skills, followed by an example of a situation when you used these skills so that back up your claim.
