Everyone ever faced this problem, even many times in the way to be hired in dream career. At the first time we read the e-mail about the unsuccessful application, it ruins the whole day. damn you company, what is wrong with me. Then come the desperation and zero-confident.
But how to get out of the beginning of thousands or millions rejection emails (I don’t wish it happens)?? The key is inside of ourselves.
For me, I always try to see the positive things. Like, at least i learned new things after the preparation of interview… Oh I re-read my previous classes materials, so now I remember it again.. Don’t be drown in sadness. Try to think that maybe we don’t fit the company’s profile. We are destined for something bigger. And for the companies who reject us, THAT’S YOUR LOSS!! I always find it helpful to cut my sadness.
While applying so many jobs, try to do great things to see better world. Such as:
- Volunteer in some organizations. be social to see new prespectives
- Read books. Your college books, novels, biographies or personal development books. I am a big fan of personal development books btw.
- Spend time with friends. Make new connections.
- Work out to reduce stress. anyway you like.
Hope you can see the rejections in a different positive way. See you next time. Btw, I am already graduated last Saturday (July 14, 2012). New start right now!! Any ideas to fill (super much) free time after graduation? just comment folks.
