HANDLING REJECTION

Keep these points in mind

  • The job search process is competitive.  There are many qualified candidates.
  • You will not be the right candidate for every opportunity (and every opportunity will not be the right one for you).
  • Do not take an employer's decision personally.  There are many variables -- some in your control, some out of your control.
  • Evaluate your performance and make room for improvement.
  • If you see a pattern, consult with your career counselor.  
  • Make corrections to your approach as needed.
  • Keep your confidence high.  Believe in yourself so that others will too.
  • Every student brings their unique strengths.  Be ready to communicate yours.
