Hi,

'Get over' often has the sense of overcome/ recover from/find a solution to. Examples:

She succeeded in getting over her illness and recovered completely

In order to reach this high position in the company he had to get over several problems in his personal life.

I am sure we'll get over this setback and soon make progress in the future.

Hello,

get on is a frequent phrasal verb.-used to talk or ask about how well sb. is doing in a particular situation.
-He is getting on very well at school.
-How did you get on at the interview?
