There are three possible reasons why you didn't get the job:

1. You sucked on the interview and they hated you.
2. You were awesome on the interview but someone else with more experience and better skills was also awesome, and they got it.
3. You were awesome on the interview but for one reason or another weren't right for the job.

Here's another, again outside one's control:
4. The hiring req was switched to bring on someone in sales instead of a TW. You don't get the job because (suddenly) there is no job. I've seen this happen. The folks who want to hire the TW get overruled from above. Why? Sales is REVENUE, but TW is an expense.
