Most companies don't send the candidate a rejection email; providing feedback is really the last thing they'll do.

The one I get the most now is just simply the "You are an excellent candidate but we found someone better suited for the role". Umm, if I'm so excellent where should I be improving??! I just really wish companies would provide feedback so I could actually work on weak areas if they exist!

Any tips for digging the real answer why you weren't hired out of the company?

Why do people always think it's something they need to improve on? The company can only hire one person so most times it's not about what you did wrong just that someone had to be chosen based on personality.
