I'd not give you the job for disclosing that information. No one with any passion for a role would have done that.
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

Thanks Alex, that confirms that I did the right thing by telling my colleagues.

I would have done the same but I also wouldn't have given me the job either.

going for an interview for an internal job that you don't get is never a waste of time. It raises your visibility, lets people see you are keen to progress and puts your name in people's mind for next time. If you get every job you interview for, then you aren't stretching yourself. Make sure you get feedback from the panel. The "why not" is valuable.

On the morale dilemma - none of my colleagues would have known I was interviewing, ideally. I'd also have had at least one spare copy.

Sorry diy, but I am in a far better position to tell whether or not it was a waste of time than you are.

Gahhhh, interviews. All that anxiety!

As for feedback, they can shove it. They always seem to slip the "we felt the other candidate had rah, rah, rah!" into the conversation. Way to kick you when you're down.

I also never consider interviews a waste of time. I even go to interviews that I have no intention of accepting, for the practise.

Interviews are stressful, but i wouldn't say is the waste of time. Evry one of them giving you a practise before the job you wish for.
