Hopefully you’ll get a call back for a second interview, and you can explain your flub. And they may not even worry about it since you were a quick thinker and corrected yourself quickly.  Everybody makes mistakes, even in job interviews. Doesn’t mean you won’t get a call back.

Try not to think about it and worry yourself too bad.

Oh no!  I hate that post-interview feeling, when you’re reliving every moment, thinking of the great answers you “could’ve” given.  🙁  Don’t beat yourself up too much.  Most people mess up at least once in an interview; I’ve never seen a perfect interview, anyway.  There’s always one question (or more!) that could’ve been answered better.  I’m sure you did fine.  🙂

I’m with Mrs. Spring, perfect interviews don’t exist.  It sounds like you nailed the rest of it, so don’t be too hard on yourself.

When I interviewed for the job I ended up with after law school, I was truly being myself when I answered one question.  It wasn’t the answer that one of the judges wanted to hear.  BUT, I didn’t get flustered or let him intimidate me.  Turns out that was what landed me the job.  The judge who selected me did so exactly because of how I responded to what might have been construed as a flub.  SO, you never know!  (Incidentally, this was the ONE job I really wanted and I didn’t have stellar grades, but I was lucky enough to land the job in October of my 3rd year.)
