Rejection – Quite Frankly, Sucks.

by Jason Nemoy

For those that are in transition, prepare/condition yourself for the rejection that awaits you. It’s tough, and you’ll see it in many forms: You’ll apply for a job, with no reply… You’ll interview for an opportunity, and they say “no”… You’ll interview for a company, and they go dark (no reply after)… You might make it as a finalist, and they choose the other candidate. I’ve been there before, and quite frankly, it sucks. So it’s really important to be open, and figure out ways to dust yourself off and quickly move on and compartmentalize when the rejection hits. Talk it out with a colleague, focus your energy and efforts on other opportunities, maybe a little retail therapy might help. Be creative.
