Has anyone ever been called back for a second interview and NOT gotten the job?

i had a really awesome interview yesterday for a great job that would double my income. the guy i met with said he loved what he saw and would like me to come back for a second interview and meet with the recruiting director. what do you think the odds of me getting this job are?

  • A second interview can go either way...my husband has been turned down after second interviews, but I've always been hired at second interviews.

  • I've gotten to the 2nd interview, and didn't get the job. The reasons were that the company decided to hold off on filling the position, another reason is that they chose another candidate. So, yes it can happen.
